Annual Report for 2015 - Student Attendance

Student Attendance

Students are required by law to attend school on every day of the school year. If a student is sick, the school should be contacted by 9:30 on the morning of the illness, otherwise we will contact the parent. A note is expected to be provided in the diary when they return to school. Students can be exempted from attending, that is, given an excused absence, where a genuine reason is provided which is acceptable to the school. Unexplained or unapproved absences are truant, and are required by law to be reported to the Education Department when their required limit is reached.

Recording Attendance

Technically we are a non-graded school. We have multi-graded classes, therefore we report attendance according to classes rather than grades.
