SCHOOL IS BETTER WHEN YOUR CHILD IS THERE
Why it’s important!
We all want our students to get a great education, and the building blocks for a great education begin with students coming to school each and every day. If students miss school regularly, they miss out on learning the fundamental skills that will set them up for success in the later years of school. There is no safe number of days for missing school – each day a student misses puts them behind, and can affect their educational outcomes. Each missed day is associated with progressively lower achievement in numeracy, writing and reading.
If your child is absence without a genuine reason the following procedure will be put in place:
- Phone call or text message to parents or emergency contact
- School letter sent home highlighting attendance concerns
- Support offered to help improve attendance
- Department letter sent home highlighting continued attendance concerns signed by the Principal
- External agencies notified to assist, support and re-engage student
Notification by text:

Please use this number to report absences via text. Please note that this number will not be answered if rung.
Ensure you provide your child’s name, class and the reason for and length of their absence.
