Every-Day-Counts

9/09/2017

Parents are required to advise the school of student absences either by a short note to the class teacher, email us at 1884_StudentAbsences@eq.edu.au
or telephone to the school office on 3897 2360.

Being at school every day counts. If your child is absent one day per week, this quickly adds up to two months of missed school in a year.
Every Day Counts is an initiative aiming to improve attendance at school.
The initiative promotes four key messages:

  • all children should be enrolled at school and attend on every school day
  • schools should monitor, communicate and implement strategies to improve regular school attendance
  • truanting can place a student in unsafe situations and impact on their future employability and life choices
  • attendance at school is the responsibility of everyone in the community
