Attendance Policy and Procedure

Children who are 6 years old but not yet 17 years are of compulsory school age irrespective of distance from school.

They are required to be enrolled at a registered government or non-government school on every day that instruction is provided unless The Minister has granted an exemption from school attendance.

We believe that future student success is determined by good attendance at school. Parental attitude towards attendance and lateness is paramount in avoiding future truancy. Successful students are well organised and start the day on time.
