It is essential that parents and / or caregivers advise the school office before five to nine each morning if students will not be attending school that day, or if they will be arriving late.  If you receive a phone call or text about your son/daughter's absence it is for our information and for your child's protection.  A daily check is kept on arrivals and departures and also on punctuality.  If students are leaving during the term for a holiday or for any other reason please advise the class teacher and Principal.  It is very important that students attend school every day unless they are sick.
