We Belong - Absence Procedure

Absence Procedure School attendance throughout the Victoria is compulsory. The school is required to monitor school attendance as part of the Education Department guidelines. Parents/guardians should ensure the school is notified of any absence.

A note of absence needs to be provided each time a child does not attend school. If your child is going to be absent from school, please contact the school via note or telephone between 8.30 – 9.00am (ph 9354-3343) to explain their absence.

Familes may also log a student absence via the Skoolbag app or email on the Contact Us tab. For your convenience, the school has absence notes available to download or pick up from the office. These allow you to just fill in your child’s name and tick a box to explain their absence.

Once a week, the school will run off letters for children who have had an unexplained absence. If you receive one, please complete and return to the school as soon as possible.

Remember, children have to be at school to learn!
