It is vitally important that students attend school every day, unless they need to be absent due to illness.
Regular attendance is a critical factor in the success of your child at school. Attendance for all students from Pre-primary to Year Six is compulsory. In Kindergarten, although not compulsory, we strongly encourage regular attendance. The school will follow up all unexplained absences, including in Kindergarten. Please note that all instances of vacation that occur inside school terms are classified as unauthorised absences. The school policy is to not provide work for students to complete during their family holidays as this sends the message that the school condones such absences.
Our school uses an SMS notification system for student attendance. This system sends a text message for any unexplained absence. This will normally occur by 9.30am each school day, but may be delayed due to technical difficulties. Parents / carers are able to advise that their child will not be at school via text message, call, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Our SMS number for Absentee notifications is 0456 575 024
All requests for extended absence should be made in writing to the Principal.
