If your child is not able to attend school on a particular day please make sure you let the school office know by 8.55am. If a student is absent without notice, the school will endeavour to contact the family to find out where the student is. However, please remember that it is the family’s responsibility to contact the school before 8.55am.

PLEASE NOTE: You are required to ring every day for which your child is absent unless a return date has been notified to the office.

  • the reason for their absence

If you need to take your child out of school for any reason during the school day, please see the school office before you collect them from class.
