We can do 92!

6/06/2015

Under Queensland law, you must make sure your child of school age is enrolled and attends school all day, every school day unless they have an acceptable reason. Illness, doing work experience or competing in a school sporting event are acceptable reasons for being absent from school. Principals decide if the reason given for your child’s absence is acceptable.

Avoid keeping your child away from school for birthdays, shopping, visiting family and friends, if they sleep in, looking after other children, minor check-ups or care such as haircuts. Routine medical or other health appointments should be made either before or after school or during the school holidays.

A set routine can assist greatly in ensuring your child is ready for school and learning each day - have a set time to go to bed; have a set time to get out of bed; have uniform and school bag ready the night before; have a set time for starting and finishing breakfast; set a time for daily homework activities; speak about school positively; be firm, send your child to school every school day, including their birthday and the last day of term!

Attendance rates less than 92% put student achievement at risk. We CAN do 92. Every day counts for Glenmore kids.
