Students must attend school on a regular basis to gain the maximum benefit from schooling and optimise their life opportunities. Research shows that learning is significantly affected if attendance drops below 90% as students are missing out on the opportunity to acquire and practice skills and knowledge.
Regular attendance and school uniform compliance is also an important requirement for Good Standing at our school. Loss of Good Standing may exclude students from being invited to participate in any reward or extra-curricula activities, representative sport or social events. School uniforms contribute to school culture and tone and promote a feeling of pride as one of the group.
Parent assistance with student attendance and uniforms is crucial, together we can optimise student outcomes.
