Notifying us of your child’s absence either prior to, or on the day that they will be away, helps ensure the safety and wellbeing of your child.
What to do to when a student is absent from school or their industry placement
If your child is absent from school or their industry placement for any reason please advise the College by using one of the following options and provide your child’s name, reason for the absence, duration and expected return:-
- Leave a message on the telephone absence line on 07 3880 4331 (Option #1) which is accessible 24/7

If we have not received an explanation by 10.00am on the day of the absence a text message will be sent to you for you to advise the school.
Please ensure you have your contact details – mobile phone number and email address, up to date at all times.
What to do to when a student is arriving late or leaving College early
Students arriving late are to report to the College Reception. Students arriving without an appropriate reason or communication from a parent/guardian will have the partial absence listed as ‘unapproved’
Students leaving early are to report to the College Reception. A parent/guardian must provide permission via email or phone before a student will be granted permission to depart the campus early. Text messages, or similar, on student phones will not be accepted as parental permission to depart early. Parents/guardians are encouraged to advise the College of early student departures early in the day to avoid delay in departure or interruptions to their working day.
