Student Absences

All student absences are to be reported to the school office by 9am each day. Notification of absences can be made on the St Augustine’s App  using  the online absence form.

Regular, punctual attendance at school is vital if your child is to obtain maximum benefit from the educational and social opportunities that the school can offer.

Children are expected to attend school, on time. Regular attendance helps your child to learn  the importance of punctuality and routine and helps them to make and keep friendships.

Completing a student attendance roll twice a day is a mandatory requirement for all schools. We are required to keep accurate records of student attendance and the reasons for any absences.
