Student Services

Late Arrivals

If students arrive late to school on any day, they must ensure they are marked present by the relevant subject teacher. They will need to provide a reason for their lateness to their Care Group teacher.

Absences

When a student is absent from school parents/caregivers are asked to contact the school by phone before 9:30am on the day of absence. If an explanation has not been received by 11:30am a message will be sent, via SMS, to those parents who have registered their mobile phone number with the school. The absence will also require a written note of explanation on the next day of attendance.

Leaving the School Ground

If a student needs to leave the school grounds for an appointment, she presents a note to her subject teacher and then reports to Student Services. Using the Student ID card, the Student Services Officer signs the student out using Daymap and the departure time is recorded. A printed receipt is placed in the diary, to be signed by the parent.

Sickness

Students who feel unwell during the school day report to Student Services for attention. In the event of an accident or illness that requires medical attention, parents will be contacted. No student is sent home unless a parent or nominated emergency contact person is contacted.

Care of Personal Property

Parents are asked to ensure that items of clothing and personal property are appropriately labelled.

All students are allocated a locker at the beginning of the school year.   Girls need to provide a suitable lock for their locker.

The use of mobile phones and other personal electronic devices is discouraged during school hours. Students are required to turn their mobile phones off at 8:40am and ensure it remains off during lesson time. The school takes no responsibility for mobile phones or other personal electronic equipment that is brought to school. They are brought to school at the student's own risk.
