At St John’s we value our learning time with students. We strive to provide optimum learning opportunities throughout our school day and continually encourage students to use their time in class wisely. We ask families to support their child’s learning by having them at school on time and closely monitoring their days absent.

Absences – All absences require a written note signed by the parent or guardian, this is necessary even when a parent has advised the classroom teacher or school office of the absence, in person or by telephone. A Skoolbag App notification is sufficient providing it has been signed by the parent or guardian.
Late Arrivals / Early Departures – If you are dropping your child off late or collecting him/her early, please visit the office to sign them in/out accordingly. Your child will be called to the office to meet you.
A written note or phone call is required if children are to be collected or travel home with anyone other than their parent or guardian.
Student absences, late arrivals and early departures are collated and recorded on your child’s Semester Reports via our Electronic Roll program.
