Attendance and Absence

Regular attendance is vital for student learning, social and academic achievement. Parents are asked to ensure children arrive at the College no earlier than 8:30am. Staff are not on duty prior to 8:30 and any student arriving earlier than this time is required to sit outside the Deputy Principals office (K-6) or Outside the staffroom (7-12).

Automatic SMS messages are sent each morning to parents/carers informing that student is absent without notice. Parents are required to inform the school of an explanation for student absence in the form of a letter, text message, email or telephone call.

If a student needs to be collected during school hours, parents must go to reception and receive a Leave Pass, which is then given to the classroom teacher.
