Absence from school
Under Section 25 of the School Education Act 1999, a child’s parents are requested to advise their class teacher in writing of the reason for their child’s absence on the child’s return to school or within three days of the child’s first day of absence to meet with the requirements of the Education Act. This includes all children enrolled in Kindergarten through to Year 6.
The Principal may also request a certificate from a medical practitioner to support the extended reason for absence for a student.
School is compulsory for students from Pre Primary to Year 6. A student who misses more than 5 days a term is deemed to be at education risk.
If your child can not attend school please fill in the online absentee form.
