Attendance at school

Regular attendance at school is fundamental to your child’s learning. Consistent attendance and participation are essential for your child’s social and academic learning.

It is important to assist your child’s achievement and learning by making regular attendance a priority in your child’s life. Under Department of Education regulations, the only acceptable reasons for absence from school are illness, or medical/dental appointments that cannot be arranged outside school hours. The Principal does not have the authority to approve absences for family holidays, shopping excursions, caring for other family members, birthdays or absences other that illness, religious or cultural observances.

Please ring the school on 9531 5900  to notify the reason for your child’s absence or reply via the Outreach Message text system. . 

Parents are asked to notify the School Office promptly if their child will be absent, of any changes to their contact details or any other relevant family details. Emergency contact details and health issues are essential.
