​Compulsory attendance – Every day counts

Regular attendance by each child is necessary for satisfactory progress to be made. Parents must assume the responsibility for the regular attendance of their children.

So that regulations under the Education Act are followed, parents are requested to provide a note of explanation or telephone the school on our absence line with an explanation regarding the child's absence. In the event of your child is absent for a period of 3 days without explanation, an absence letter with initial concerns of attendance will be posted home followed by the necessary procedures to ensure attendance. Where an unsatisfactory explanation of absenteeism is received from the parents/carer and truancy is apparent, the matter will be reported to the appropriate authorities.

We monitor unnecessary absenteeism carefully to ensure a student's opportunity to learn is not impaired by truancy.
