Absent from school

We request that if your child is absent you advise the office via the school’s message system (0437 515 023), in writing or email
An SMS is sent to advise parents that according to school records, the student is absent and no reason has been provided to the school. It is a legal requirement that parents contact the school regarding any student absences or reasons for lateness. If an explanation for the absence has been provided prior to 9.30AM each morning, then parents will not receive an SMS.

For families that have the School Star App installed, text messages from the school regarding student absences will now be sent through the App and not your normal ‘phone messaging’ service. Please ensure notifications for School Star are kept on. For those who do not have the App installed yet, messages from the school will still be delivered as a text. Please save this number into your phone, 0437 515 023 to notify the school of absences.

All holidays taken outside of normal school holiday breaks are to be placed in writing to the Principal for approval via email to or by messaging with your vacation leave and return dates.

Late arrival to school

We encourage you to assist your child by being punctual in their attendance and arrive to class before 8:30am. Students arriving late for any reason must go to Administration to collect a Late Note and advise staff of any reason for lateness.
