Student Absences

Student Absences

Email, phone 04 236 7785, or text 027 236 7785 the school before 9:00am and advise us of your child’s name, room number, and the reason for the absence.

If it is a planned absence (ie holiday) the school needs to be notified in advance in writing. This can be emailed to the school office.

Unjustified absence for three consecutive days can result in referral to the Attendance Service.

Student Lateness

If your child arrives after the 8:55am bell, they must sign in at the school office before going to their class. They will be given a late pass to give to their teacher so the roll can be updated. It is very important that the school is advised of any changes to caregiver contact details.

We use an online school management system called Hero. Hero allows teachers to share learning anytime, anywhere and this can be viewed on any device.

Our aim is to implement a robust system that allows teachers, parents, and students to access learning in an online environment that is secure, easy, and effective.

For information about how to log in and view your child’s learning, go to the  Hero for Parents website page.

If you have any issues, please let us know and we can help you through it. 

The Hero App includes:

  • Absences: You can advise your child’s absence (please ensure this is done before 9:00am).
  • Classroom Notices: School activities and contributions can be viewed and paid by credit card via the app.
  • General Information: You can also view general information about your child.
