Children are expected to attend school each school day of the school year. Irregular attendance can be disruptive to a child’s education. If a child is absent from school, the parents are asked to provide a note of explanation to the teacher either through an email to the office and teacher, the BCE Connect App or Parent Portal or inform the school by telephone on 3371 1094. It is mandatory that if a child is being taken out of school for a family holiday, trip overseas or other miscellaneous reasons, the parents must complete a flexible schooling arrangements form. The form must be returned to the school and is then kept on the child's file.
