Father’s Day

We hope that you all enjoyed celebrating Father’s Day over the weekend- what magnificent weather we had! Father’s day is a wonderful opportunity for students to recognise and show appreciation for the significant males in our lives and continue building empathy and appreciation for those around us.   

We also hope all our dads enjoyed their specially chosen from the Father’s Day stall. The students enjoyed selecting their favourite items that they knew their special person would like. 

Student Absences - Notifying The School 

Please continue to ensure that all student absences, regardless of the reason, are reported to the school as soon as possible.


While we understand that at times there are unavoidable reasons for why students are not at school, we ask for your assistance in notifying the school the reason why. Where possible, attendance notes should be entered prior to the absence/lateness occurring.


Attendance notification can be done in one of the following ways: 

  1. Online: log the absence directly on Compass
  2. Telephone: the school office and let the staff know your child’s name, class, date of absences and reason. - 53413560
  3. Email: the school and provide the staff with your child’s name, class, date of absences and reason. buninyong.ps@education.vic.gov.au 
  4. SMS notification - click on the link within the text message that indicates your child is away

Compass is quite simple to use to add a note for the unexplained absences for your child/ren, both past and future. Please click HERE for more information.


We appreciate your support and assistance in adding notes for your child/ren's absences.
