Absence

If at any time you need to take your child out of school for an appointment it is essential that the school be notified as soon as possible.  Any request for student leave should be completed in writing addressed to the Principal at the earliest possible opportunity.

If your child is absent from school due to illness you must follow our absence reporting procedures which requires parents/carers to contact the school by 9.00am the same day of the absence to notify them of the absence and the reason why.

Medical absences of more than 3 days must be certified by a doctor.
