Students who arrive at the school on the completion of morning pastoral care i.e. after 8.55 am are required to report at the school office first to receive a late pass.
Students are not permitted to leave the school grounds for any reason during school hours without first providing a written note from a parent/carer and obtaining permission from the administration staff.
Students who have been absent are required to bring a note to their pastoral care group teacher on the day of their return explaining their absence.
A telephone call would be appreciated concerning pending absences and on-going absences.
