Regular Attendance at school is an important contributor to student well being and learning. the Victorian Government mandates that regular attendance should be enforced in the community.

The school must be informed about a child’s absence in a timely fashion on the day of the absence giving suitable reason. There are a number of ways of informing the school:


use of the Skoolbag App

by telephone to 5940 2888

by email to office@stppakenham.catholic.edu.au

by other communication with your child’s teacher


Please note that failure to inform the school with adequate reason will result in SMS contact during the first hour of the school day, demanding an explanation. Repeated unexplained absence will be reported to the school authorities.
