All the children attending BHPS Xtra in the morning are escorted directly to their classrooms to ensure they start the school day promptly. After school the infant children (Year R, 1 and 2) are taken from their classroom to BHPS Xtra by staff and the junior children (Y3-6) make their way independently to BHPS Xtra. On arrival they will be offered a drink and a light healthy snack.
