Term 4 Attendance Update

Term 4 Attendance Update 1

February Attendance Update


Currently, I’m pleased to announce that our overall attendance is currently 96.6%. This time last year our attendance was 95%. This shows how hard we are working as a community to bring our children into school regularly. Good attendance is linked heavily to making good progress in school. It also helps the children to form new friendships and embed a regular routine into their lives.


As teachers, it is incredibly noticeable when a child has missed a lot of school due to persistent absence. Where a child has missed a lot of school due to illness, the school can ask for medical evidence for our records. We also encourage dentist and doctors appointments to be booked after school hours or during school holidays.


During term 3, 3 Juniper reined supreme as they had the highest attendance for the term. Congratulations! Below are the attendance figures for term 3.
