Reporting a student absence

We kindly ask that student absences are reported for EACH DAY OF ABSENCE by a parent/guardian by 9:00am using one of the following methods:

You need to provide: Your name, full name of student, form registration group and the reason for absence.

If your child is absent and you do not contact school each day, you will receive a text message and a telephone call. If we are unable to make contact the school Attendance Officer may conduct a home visit.
