Parent Information

Withdrawing Students Early

As it is a legal obligation for parents to ensure that their children attend school every day for all of the school day, students should only be withdrawn from school during the day for legitimate reasons, e.g. sickness, family funerals, important appointments etc. The school principal is required to assist parents and caregivers to meet this obligation.

The staff have been advised that they cannot say "Yes" if they are asked if it is okay to take a child from school early after (say) sports or swimming. All children are required to be at school all day. If there are any questions about this please see the school principal.
