If your child is not going to be able to attend school on a particular day, please ring or text the class teacher (in primary) by 8.00 am, the Home Group Teacher or subject teacher (in secondary) or the School Office (after 8.30 am) so that information can be passed on to the class teacher.
This is especially important for secondary level because of the small numbers in some classes. This issue is also important for the instrumental music program where classes are charged if absences are not notified. When children arrive late for school, they must sign in at the office before going to their class.
Parents may take their children on holiday at any time during the year, provided that written notification is received at the school at least two weeks prior to the holiday.
The school reserves the right to recommend that children continue their attendance uninterrupted if the teachers believe this to be in the best interests of the child at a particular time.
Under State and Federal legislation, the School is required to keep a record of each child’s attendance. Any absence should be followed by a signed note from the parent giving reasons for the absence.
