Report an Absence



In the interests of your child's safety we are required by the Ministry of Education to hear from you if your child is absent from school. We have an answer phone available for all absences, please ring before 9.15 a.m as we operate an electronic attendance system throughout the school, so it is important that children are at school on time every day. 

Should there be a need for you to take your child from school during the day, you are required to report to the office to sign your child out of school in the "sign out book". 

This is particularly important as it could mean that nobody has seen the child depart and it may take some time to establish their whereabouts. 

If there are custody issues or court orders relating to your child please inform the Principal of these.
