New casual relief staff may need a Tax Exemption form
and a Direct Deposit Authority. Both of these are

are found in the front office (ask the School Assistants)
or in the staffroom, clipped to the back of the desks
facing the coffee tables. The school code is 0815.
You will be advised of the account code to be used
on the day.
Claim forms should be returned to the Head Teacher
directly or, if on more than a daily relief basis,
