Did you know research demonstrates a clear correlation between school attendance and school achievement? Therefore it is important that students attend every single day. Under the law, schools are expected to monitor students' attendance and any unexplained absences will be followed up with parents or caregivers. There are a number of ways you can let us know your child is absent. You can notify us via the QParents App or by leaving a message on the school's absence line on 3821 8181 . Don't despair if you do forget. You can also reply to the Student Absence SMS sent by the school.
