If you have a child born 1st July 2016 to 30th June 2017 and have not yet submitted an application for Kindergarten 2021, please download the Expression of Interest form from the school website and return it to the school office as soon as possible. Alternatively, forms can be obtained from the office. Please note that enrolments for Kindy 2021 will be finalised in late Term 1 or early Term 2 next year.
Late Arrivals to School
Please note, if your children are late to school (ie arrive after 8:40am), they must be signed in at the Office. Otherwise they will show as absent on the roll. Thank you.
Please note, after an absence a SIGNED NOTE needs to be provided to the teacher on your child’s return to school. The Department of Education Services has confirmed that whilst an SMS or phone message is NOT a substitute for a signed note when reporting absences, an email meeting the following criteria can be accepted:
- FULL name of the student
- CLASS / roll group of the student
- Reason for the absence
- FULL NAME of the PARENT/GUARDIAN at the end of the message (the ‘from’ email address is not sufficient).
Please send emails meeting the above criteria to: email@example.com or fill in the online absentee form on the Connected app.
Please note, teachers do not get to sit down and check their emails first thing in the morning, so if you have emailed the teacher regarding your child’s absence, they may not receive the information until later in the day. Therefore, please do not be upset if you receive an SMS or phone call from the Office to clarify the absence. For this reason, a phone call to the ABSENTEE LINE 6278 9802 is a more efficient way of communicating an absence than an email to the class teacher.
