If your child is going to be absent you need to ring the attendance line 09 268 3958 and leave a message. Attendance is taken on a daily basis – class by class so if you receive a text from us that your child is absent from school this means they have been marked absent for the majority of the day. Please RING us if you have any concerns about your child’s attendance. We are keen to have students attending school on a regular basis and are happy to discuss how this might be achieved if you are experiencing any issues in this area.
