Department of Education policy states that all children from Pre Primary attend school for five full days as from the commencement of the school year.
Attendance details are entered electronically twice daily by classroom teachers and the information fed onto a school database. An SMS messaging service endorsed by the Department of Education operates to enable parents to inform the school by text message if their child is going to be absent. The system also automatically sends a message to parents if their child has not arrived at school and no notification has been received. This service assists parents to advise the school of absences and also ensures the safety of children by letting parents know that the child has not arrived at school.
Contacting the school
If your child is going to be absent or late, please send a brief text message any time before 9.30am and there is no need to try and catch one of the office staff to speak to at a busy time of the morning.
Alternatively, you can email to advise us of their absence. Please include your child’s class and reason for absence.
