  1. Sentral parent portal page * preferred
    (contact the office to obtain your unique login details)
  2. Phone or email us
  3. Complete the absence form  absence note (pdf, 54 KB)

It is a good idea to let us know if your child is going to be absent for more than a couple of days so we can keep their teacher informed. 

It is a legal requirement that all child absences must be explained.

Extended Leave Procedure

If you are planning to take your child out of school for more than 5 school days (e.g. family holiday or overseas travel) you must make an application for Principal Approved Leave using this digital form via the schoobytes portal. (print version also available from the office).

When completed, email the form to us a or print and bring to the office. 

Once approved, you will be issued with a Certificate of Leave which must accompany your child at all times whilst on leave.

It is a legal requirement that such absences must be explained and correctly documented.
