Explanation for Absence form

Should your child be absent from school or late arriving or need to leave school early, then the school will require written notification. A standardised form can be found here, on completion the form can be handed in at Student Services.

 

Application for extended Student Absence

Parents are strongly discouraged from applying for extended student absence during Term time. Opportunities for holidays exist through the more than 12 weeks of scheduled school holiday time. If absent during term time, students miss out on valuable learning experiences and possibly assessments. If parents deem it absolutely necessary to remove students from school for any purpose then adequate prior written notice must be given. The Principal will review the information provided and consider whether the absence is Approved or Not Approved. In the case of a student absence that is Not Approved it will be deemed as non-completion or non-submission of any assessment tasks scheduled during this time of absence in accordance with the College Assessment Policy.

The Application for extended Student Absence during Term time can be found here on completion the form can be handed in at Student Services.

 

Change in Parent Details

Should your contact details change then the College needs to be notified as soon as possible. You may download the form here. Once it is completed, please scan the document and email Student Services. Alternatively, the form can be printed, completed and then handed in at Student Services.
