Edition 131 - Friday 22nd May 2020

Office Hours, Leave Applications, School Contributions

School contributions – parents are reminded of the importance of school financial contributions towards the funding of school programs and resources. Reminder invoices are sent regularly. If any parent is experiencing financial difficulty, please notify the principal with a letter marked Confidential so that a review of outstanding amounts can be completed.

Office Hours and Lost Property – parents are reminded that reception is open from 8.00am till 3.15pm and the cash desk is open at 8:00am till 1.15pm and all non-valuable lost property is placed in a central clearing area at the far end of the administration corridor. The automatic doors are only opened from the inside by office staff for security reasons.

Leave Applications – procedures regarding applications for extended leave are developed by the Department of Education. Applications for leave are submitted to the principal outlining exceptional reasons with appropriate documentation required to justify leave of absence. If this cannot be done, leave will not be approved and any absence will be recorded as unjustified on reports and official records. If leave is approved, a Certificate of Leave for Extended Travel will be granted and recorded in student attendance files. Parents are advised to keep this in mind especially when booking overseas trips around school holiday times.
