Important Term 3 Attendance Information


Term 3 is now in full swing, which is a good time to remind parents and students of our attendance policy. Great attendance at school is imperative not only to academic success but to social confidence and to the development of the school community. We expect that students, unless ill, attend every lesson every day. The below table demonstrates the impact absences can have - even when these seem minor. 

Please consider your children’s attendance, and whether they are meeting our attendance targets below.

Key Points to Note

  • Assessment schedules are available in the Compass App for each year level. Select High School> Learning> Assessment> Assessment Schedules.
  • It is important that students attend school consistently in the lead-up to, and during, assessment time to ensure success for each piece. 
  • We ask that Year 7 - 12 parents avoid taking students out of school for term-time holidays or other commitments that may impact their learning and assessment schedule.
  • Extensions for assessments will not be given in the case of absence, except in extenuating circumstances.
  • Term 3 finishes on Thursday, 14 September. Important learning will be occurring in every year level until this date. Please avoid early holidays.

Please let us know if there are ways we can partner with you to support your child’s good attendance at school!
