Student Absentees

Student Absences and Late Arrivals

Families are kindly asked to contact the school office before 9.30am if your child will be absent or late.

Please leave the student’s name, class and the reason for the student’s absence. If an absence is unexplained an automatic SMS message will be sent to parents requesting confirmation of an absence.

You can do this by phoning the school on 8198 3100 (select option 1 and leave a message).


Communication with the classroom teacher is required when a student:

  • Is going to arrive at school late, due to a pre-arrangement
  • Needs to leave before dismissal time
  • Is going on a family holiday.  For extended holiday’s (7 days or more) an application for exemption from school must be completed and submitted to the Principal. Forms are available from the Front Office.
  • Any other pre-arranged absence.


Late Arrivals and Early Departures

ALL students who arrive at school after the 8.45am bell must sign in at the Front Office.

Students who need to leave school before the 3.10pm dismissal time must be signed out in the Front Office by an adult.
