Absences from School

All absences and late arrivals from school require notification by student parents/carers. This facilitates the accurate completion of the Register of Attendance in compliance with Government policies. Absences can be notified by telephone on 6205 5644 or in writing to the class teacher.


Arrival at School

Children should not be at school before 8.40am. From 8.40am a teacher is on duty to supervise the students. Due to student numbers and space restrictions, children are not to use the play equipment, bats, footballs, soccer balls, basketballs or the like before school. In the event a child needs assistance or first aid they can see the teacher on duty or go into the building to the office. At 8.55am the bell will ring and students will move to the class line up area. Please ensure children arrive at school in time to commence lessons at 8.55am. A late arrival is very disruptive and often your child will miss important announcements.


Assemblies

Whole School Assemblies are held every second Friday in the Senior Hall. Assemblies will commence at 2.00pm. We suggest you arrive early to ensure adequate parking.


Attendance

Regular attendance is vital as it affects school work, social adjustment and attitudes to school. Absences can be a considerable handicap to a child's progress. However, home is the best place for a really sick child. We do not have the facilities or staff to look after a sick child. In the event of a child becoming ill at school, or where a child is unfortunate enough to have an accident, you or your emergency contact will be informed. It is important that you complete the medical form and that all listed telephone numbers are current.


Australian Sustainable Schools Initiative (AUSSI)
