The importance of good attendance

Due to a departmental edict from the Director General, from the Department of Education and Training, the school is required to work towards IMPROVING THE ATTENDANCE and PUNCTUALITY RATES of our students.

There are a number of good reasons why your child needs to attend school regularly.  By regularly, we mean above 90% of the time.  Which equates to no more than five absent days per term.  Of course there are always exceptions to this when children need to take time off school for perfectly acceptable reasons.

What should I do if my child is away from school?

  • Please let the school know at the earliest convenience, either by phone, email or Flexibuzz.
  • If your child is going to be away for more than three days please let the school know by phone or email.
  • Send a note with your child to explain why your child was away.

What’s the role of the school?

The school is here to help and work in partnership with parents that are having difficulties in getting their children to school.  We have a number of strategies and interventions that can be used to help.  If you are having problems please don’t hesitate to contact the school so we can all start working on a solution.
