Students are expected to attend school every day.

The college requires an explanation from parents of all absences from school and school activities. Please refer to the Student Attendance Policy for a full outline of expectations and procedures, but in general:

  • Short, unexpected absences – parents are asked to notify the college early on the day via the Report Absences tab on the Parent Portal, emailing gcounsel@cns.catholic.edu.auor by phoning 4063 5300
  • Expected absences – parents must advise their Wellbeing Leader of expected short absences (eg interviews or medical appointments).
  • Lengthy absences (or an absence at the start of or end of term) – Parents must submit a Student Leave Request Form to the principal for approval.
