Attendance
The school needs to be notified of all absences. Absences other than for medical reasons need to be discussed with the school principal in advance. We encourage students to attend school every day, unless they are sick. The school is not equipped for sick students, the best place for a child who is unwell is at home, where they can rest and recover, without spreading infections and viruses to their classmates and staff.

Student Attendance Risk – what does it mean?
If a student attends 90% of the time, we regard them as attending regularly.  However, a student attending 90% of the time will miss:
1 day a fortnight
1 week a term
4 weeks a year
1 year by the end of Year 9
