Year 2/3/4 Top of Class for Attendance

13/05/2016

Congratulations to Year 2/3/4 for excellent attendance rates to date for Term 2.  A whopping 96.26 % attendance rate (closely followed by Year 3/4/5).  Great work from all classes for ALL achieving above our target of 93%.

Being at school every day counts. If your child is absent one day per week, this quickly adds up to two months of missed school in a year. 

Every day counts is an initiative aiming to improve attendance at school. The initiative promotes four key messages:

  • all children should be enrolled at school and attend on every school day

  • schools should monitor, communicate and implement strategies to improve regular school attendance

  • truanting can place a student in unsafe situations and impact on their future employability and life choices

  • attendance at school is the responsibility of everyone in the community.
