SMS Attendance notifications

The attendance desk will send automated SMS messages home for students who have unresolved absence on the roll. Please remember to inform the College if your child will not be attending.


Late Arrivals

Please note that any students who arrive late to College must report to Student Services to sign in through Compass Kiosk where they will receive a photo ID late arrival slip to take to class.


Early Departures

When a student needs to leave school early for an appointment, parents are advised to supply their child with a note they can show to their teacher when they need to depart class. Students tag out at the attendance desk, situated in the front office, where they can wait for their parent/carer to collect them. The parent/carer will need to sign the early departure book prior to taking their child.


If unwell

Students must report to the Student Services desk for attention. Our support staff will call home to make arrangements for someone to collect them from the College if necessary.
