Attendance

Parents are legally responsible for the continuing attendance of their child at school. Attendance is compulsory during the normal school hours and absences can greatly affect your child’s progress. Students are not permitted to leave the school premises during school hours without parent approval.

Absences or Late Arrival

Parents/carers are asked to contact the College before 9.00am on 03 9223 1400 if your child is going to be absent from school. Text messages are sent at approximately 10.00am each morning to parents/carers of absent students.

For longer term absences parents/carers are required to submit a note to the general office and inform the tutor group/classroom teacher.

Students are expected to be on time at the beginning of the day and to attend all classes. Students arriving late are disruptive to the class and interfere with other students’ leaning. Students who are late to school must collect a late pass at the office.
