Student Absences

It’s Not OK to be Away

 

Students with irregular and poor attendance often struggle at school and the value they receive from their education is greatly diminished as a result.

 

Portland Secondary College takes the issue of student absence very seriously but it is not an issue which can be dealt with solely by the school.  It requires the support of both parents and the community if it is to be successfully addressed.

 

Please make sure that your child attends school every day.  Try to make medical appointments etc outside school hours and take holidays over the designated holiday period. 

It is only when we see education as a partnership between the school and parents that we will be able to properly address the issue of student absenteeism.

 

If an absence is unavoidable please contact the General Office on 55231344.  Alternatively a note can be sent the next day for the student to drop off at the general office or by logging it on Compass.
