Absence From School

Travel outside of the school vacation period is counted as an absence for statistical purposes. Please complete a Form A4 Notification Extended Leave Travel. An absence, in this case, will be recorded using the Code ‘A’ (Unjustified Leave).

Please note relevant travel documentation such as an e-ticket or itinerary (in the case of non-flight bound travel within Australia only) must be attached to these applications.

This is a compulsory requirement by law and must be completed before the student goes on leave.

SMS Notification of Student Absence

The College will forward an SMS message to the parent/guardian of any student who has not arrived by 8.50 am for Homeroom.  This system is working well with positive feedback coming from parents.  For this service to operate effectively, parents/guardians need to ensure that the correct contact details are always updated with the office.  In conjunction with this system, parents are requested to respond to the SMS message by 3 pm on the day of the absence or alternatively provide a signed note of explanation.
