One of the most important things you can do to ensure your child has a bright future is to make sure he or she goes to school every day, all day and gets there on time.
It sounds simple, but it's true.
The correlation between school attendance and children's achievement levels is well-established. The more time kids spend at school, the more likely they are to experience school success.
When kids miss school, not only is their academic progress impeded, forcing them to catch up on missed work (which some never do), they often miss important interactions with their peers which can compound issues of social isolation and low self-esteem.
Since the start of the school year, The College has had a large number of Parents/Guardians wishing to collect their students prior to the end of the school day.
If your student is required to attend a medical or other appointment please arrange to do so outside of school hours where possible. Students are also requested to provide a note from their Parent/Guardian to the Administration Office advising of the appointment, the morning of their absence.
This will enable our Administration Staff to have your student ready to leave when you arrive for collection.
Please note that from session 5 (2.25pm) onwards, students without prior notification, will not be permitted to be dismissed from class. As you can appreciate at this late stage of the day it causes a great disruption to classrooms and impedes our student's learning.
In case of an emergency, as always, please contact our Administration Office on 03 5783 0300.
