When a student is to be absent, parents are asked to telephone the school between 8.30 am and 9.15 am to let us know. Telephone 04 939-8216 or leave a message on our Message Line (04 939-8265) after hours.
If we have not heard from you by 9.15 am, we endeavour to contact you by a phone call to find out the reason for absence. We are very strict in ensuring that truancy does not occur and that students arrive at school safely.
For medical and dental appointments during school hours, permission is always given provided there is verification by an appointment card, letter or phone call.
