|To assist parent(s) in advising the College
of student absences, the following options are available.
Calls concerning student absence notifications
can be made at any time on 8364 8387 for Middle and Senior Years and 8364 8333
for Junior Years. An answering service is in place to ensure that your call is not missed. When
calling, please ensure that you include in your message your son's full name, PC or class group, reason
for absence and duration of absence.
For those who prefer to email, the College has a dedicated
email address for student absence notifications: firstname.lastname@example.org
Again, please include
in your message your son's full name, PC or class group, reason for absence and duration of absence.
Parent(s) are asked to contact the College before 9.00am on the day of absence and also advise
expected duration of absence. When returning to school after being absent, a signed parental note must
be presented to the Pastoral Care or Class Teacher.
If a student is absent from school for
more than three days, or from a compulsory school event, a doctor's certificate must be provided.
SMS ABSENCE NOTIFICATION
The College will be contacting parents when a
student's absence reason is entered as "Unknown" by the teacher. Consequently the College needs to ensure
that parent(s) mobile phone numbers are recorded correctly.
If you receive a message regarding
your son's absence, please respond at your earliest convenience. You may do so by telephone or email;
details will be contained in the message you receive.
If the College has not received a response
from a parent by the afternoon, a letter will be sent indicating that the absence will be recorded as
unresolved and will appear on your son's report accordingly.
