Student Absence


The Education Department requires parents to supply the school with an explanation for the absence of any child.

If a child is absent due to illness or any other reason, please telephone the school after 9.00am as a security measure so that we know why your child has not arrived at school.  If children are absent for longer periods, written notification must be provided to the school.

Please contact the office if you intend taking your child/ren from school during the day, or if your child/ren are to be collected by someone other than yourself or the usual minder.
