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, 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.
