Arrival and Early Departure
Children arriving late
to school must report to the office for a late attendance to be registered. When children are required to leave school
early, they need to be signed out at the office by a parent or guardian
unless the parent has contacted the school to make alternative
arrangements. Children are not to be collected directly from class.
Student absences from
school must be reported. If your child is sick or the family has matters
to attend to, please inform the school by ringing the absentee line (5549
4266), sending an email, or writing a note so that we can record
the absence as an explained absence. If your child is constantly
away or constantly late without an explanation, we are obliged to report this
to the relevant authority.

unreasonable to attend) in the circumstances for a period of more than 10
