Request for Extended Leave from Junior School during Term Time (Junior Kindergarten - Year 6)
As stated in the School Education Act 1999, it is expected that students attend School for each day that it is open for instruction (for students in Pre-Primary - Year 6).
Parents use this form when requesting a leave of absence at the beginning or end of term or an extended absence during the term. Please submit for approval at least one month prior to a requested departure (except in extenuating circumstances). The School prefers that students do not miss class time to ensure that no important work is missed and we ask that you please note the following:
- It is not the responsibility of the classroom teacher to provide any lesson materials for students taking extended holiday/leave.
- Students are not permitted to sit assessments early or late. On return they may be able to sit the assessment for practice and feedback purposes. Any assignments due while students are away must be submitted before departure.
