Attendance

When a child is absent from school, a note or email should be sent informing the teacher of dates of absence and reason. A verbal notification is sufficient if the absence is short but a medical certificate may be required to explain prolonged absences. Follow up Absentee Notes will be sent home in accordance with Department of Education Regulations to parents who do not explain their child’s absence.

Kindergarten is a non compulsory year of education. However once enrolled it is compulsory for students to attend and absence requirements apply.
