If your child is absent and you have not informed the school an SMS will be generated to inform you of their absence. Holidays taken during the school term require permission from the Principal. Please email Mrs Jeffers at with your request and include your child’s full name; class and year level; dates of absence, the reason for absence is particularly important as this will determine the category used.

Children arriving after the siren at 8.50am must enter school via the front office to obtain a Late Pass. This is to ensure that their arrival has been recorded and overwrites any unexplained absence the teacher may have recorded on their attendance roll.
