Absence from school and class clearly affects the absent student, but also impacts on the teacher’s ability to plan and present class work in a sequential and organised way. This can affect the progress of all students in the class, not only those missing, and can make classroom management difficult.
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank the students who achieved 95%+ attendance for 2012.
They are; Anthonie, Cynthia, Claudia, Eliza, Thomas E, Liam, Jude, Harry, Mark, Hannah P, Freda Teesha, Amy, Euhan, Tobias, Charlie, Fynn M, Harry S, Santino Sebastian, Olivia, Victor, Harmany, Cherise, Tess, Rosie, Muhammad, Lavanya, Bronte, Christine, Hannah Y, Ruth, Evelyn, Daniel, Julia, Carissa, Taoh (100%), Tayha, Ben N, Helen, Sobhan, Benjamin W, Rylie, Krystal, Mohammad Y, Mohamed A, Claire B, Clare D, Todd, Phoebe, Marthese, Ellison, Angela, Marshall, Kiki, Isabella, Jacob B, Elloise, Marcus (100%), Jake, Joseph, Maya H, Gloria, Anu, Brandon, Guddu, Abdullah, Yuvani, Lucy, Rani, Catherine B, Morgan, Michelle, George, Ellie, Azra, Ray, Shaina, Lily, Sam E, Alexis (100%), Hinda, Elvis, Suli, Lily M, Bi and Ruby.
To help us achieve our target this year we ask parents and caregivers to make sure their child:
attends school on ALL school days
is on time every day
Make sure you:
provide the school with an explanation if your child is away
contact the school if your child does not want to go to school
arrange doctor and dentist appointments out of school hours
arrange personal shopping trips with your son/ daughter or birthday celebrations out of school hours
do not allow your child to stay at home for minor reasons.
