School Attendance

Schooling is compulsory for all students from Pre Primary to Year 6 at Hawker Park Primary School.  Students are expected to attend the school during normal school hours every day of each term, unless ill.

Students will be recorded as late if they arrive at school after 8.30am and will need to proceed to the office with an adult to request a Late Note.

When a student has been absent from school and an acceptable explanation has not been forthcoming, the school will send a written request for an explanation to the student’s family to establish the reasons for non-attendance.
