Welcome reader: 

Term 3 is certainly a busy term for both staff and students. As students receive their Semester One reports this week it is timely to remind families to notify the College of any absences within 7 days. Notification of an absence can be done by sending in a note with you child, a phone call to the College office, electronically by using the iphone/ipad app or submitted online through the absent form available on the College website "Parents tab".
