Attendance Matters

31/07/2017
Arriving on time for school, every day
 
Being late for class often means important instructions are missed and the class is interrupted. Children need to arrive on time ready to settle into their school work. Arriving at least 5 minutes before the first bell allows your child to interact with their peers and teacher and get themselves ready for their busy day.  Attending school regularly and arriving on time helps prepare children for the real world, where it is expected that they turn up for to work every day and on time.
 
What if my child is sick?
 
Children will get sick and need to stay home occasionally. However, don’t let your child stay at home unless they are truly sick. Keep in mind that complaints such as stomach ache or headache without any symptoms can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay at home. Please don’t send your child to school if they have a fever, diarrhoea, vomiting, a serious cough, rash, conjunctivitis or a contagious illness e.g. chicken pox.  And always inform the school if your child is absent ASAP. If they are anxious about going to school please talk to your child’s teacher.
