Absenteeism

 

Absentee information

If a student is absent from school, the parent/guardian should telephone the absentee line (07) 5547 9317, prior to commencement of the students school day. The absentee lines are open 24 hours a day.
 

Please leave a message on the answering machine (wait until after the beeps) stating the date of the absence, your child's name, form class and reason for absence.

The College also uses a text message facility which sends parents/guardians a message when a student is marked absent from school that day.

Every Day Counts

Every Day Counts is a state wide initiative that aims to assist in improving student attendance at school. It is designed to change parent, community and student attitudes and foster a shared commitment to improving school attendance.

Every Day Counts promotes four key messages:

  • All children should be enrolled at school and attend on every school day
  • Schools should monitor, communicate and implement strategies to improve regular school attendance
  • Truanting can place a student in unsafe situations and impact on their future employability and life choices
  • Attendance at school is the responsibility of everyone in the community.
