Absences from School

All absences and late arrivals from school require notification by parents/carers. This facilitates the accurate completion of the Register of Attendance in compliance with Government policies. http://www.education.act.gov.au/publications_and_policies/policy_a-z.  Absences can be notified by telephone on 6205 6565, by email to bonythonps@ed.act.edu.au , through the smartphone app or in writing to the class teacher or front office.  Up and coming absences can be communicated to teachers via note, or email. 

 


Annual Medical form

Annual Medical forms are sent home each year to parent/carers.  These need to be completed and returned to school as soon as possible.  These forms are required to be taken with students when they are attending sporting events or going on excursions.  To ensure that the information on this form is accurate and current, you are requested to advise the school immediately of any changes and arrange to update the form.


Arrival at School

Children and parents are reminded that the school provides direct supervision of children between 9.00am and 3.00pm.  It is advised that children arrive at school as close as possible to 9.00am when the bell rings and leave the grounds promptly at 3.00pm.  It is recommended that children should not be at school before 8.45am as supervision is not provided before this time.  Children arriving at school between 8.45am and 9.00am must wait near the basketball courts, depending on the weather conditions.  The equipment may not be used until a teacher is present. When the bell rings at 9.00am all students need to walk to their units ready for learning.  Students arriving at school after 9.10am need to report to the front office to receive a late note.  If they arrive after 9.30am they must be signed in by a parent/carer at the front office.


Assemblies

Whole School Assemblies are held in weeks 4, 6, 8 and 10 on Fridays of each school term in the Hall.  Assemblies are held from 9.15am.  We suggest you arrive early to ensure adequate parking.


Attendance

In accordance with the Education Act 2004 (the Act) the education participation requirements include that:

• Any child living in the ACT who is of compulsory education age (between 6 and 17 years old) must be enrolled with an education provider or registered for home education until they complete year 10.
• Children must meet the full-time participation (attendance) requirements of their education provider.
• A child’s parents are responsible for ensuring their child is enrolled in an education course with an education provider (or registered for home education) and meeting the education provider’s full-time participation (attendance) requirements, or that their child has an Exemption Certificate.

The Directorate will work to ensure that each child is given every opportunity and support to enable them to meet the education participation requirements, and will work with other government and non-government agencies where necessary.

If a child continues not to meet the education participation requirements, the Directorate may issue notices to the child’s parents requiring information or compliance. Failure to comply with these notices could result in parents being fined up to $1100.
