At St Anthony’s we believe daily school attendance is important for all children and young people to succeed in education and to ensure they don’t fall behind both socially and developmentally.
Children and young people who regularly attend school and complete year 12 or an equivalent have better health outcomes, better employment outcomes and higher incomes across their lives. It is very important that children develop habits of regular attendance at an early age.
Student’s attendance is recorded twice daily by their classroom teachers. Parents are contacted by the office staff if an absence is unexplained.
