From the Office

Student Absences

It’s not OK to be Away!


If your child is away due to illness or a    medical appointment, please phone the school before 10.00am.

Notes for medical appointments can be handed in to the General Office before the day of the appointment.

Students telling their teacher, or a friend, is not adequate notification of your child’s absence.

Families who are going on holidays during the school term should provide a letter to the school at least 2 weeks prior to the holiday,  so that work for the students can be provided.

Study Periods

Dear parents,

Please be advised that students in Year 11 and 12 are to be at school during their study periods. Study periods are an opportunity for students to catch up on any work to be completed such as class tasks, projects and also homework.


They are a valuable learning time and we appreciate your assistance in supporting your child’s learning.  If your child is unable to attend their study period we kindly ask that you please send a note or phone either Mr. Lindorff or Mrs. Evans.


Student’s who are unable to provide a note may need to catch up on their study period during recess or lunch time. Thank you for your understanding and support.


School Uniform

Students are reminded that they are expected to wear the correct socks to school.

Boys - plain grey socks, no emblems.

Girls - plain white socks with summer dress or shorts and navy tights with the kilt.


School coats and vests are available to purchase from Beleza in Ballarat.
