Rules and policies

Attendance and absences

Students must attend school regularly so they can achieve their educational best and increase their career and life options.

In NSW, all children from the age of 6 are legally required to attend school or be registered for home schooling through the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). All students must complete Year 10, or its equivalent.

For more information about compulsory school attendance, visit:

If your child is absent from school for one or two days there is no need to phone the school. When your child returns to school please fill in the absence notification in Eforms on the Skool Bag App and submit it from your phone.

If your child will be absent for more than 9 school days please submit an Extended Leave Application to the school office along with the associated travel documents or medical paperwork.
