Absences

Absentee Notification

Parents/carers are requested to inform the College if a child is absent by;

  • phoning the office before 8:45 am (8725 1430)
  • sending a note or message with a sibling
  • emailing absent@stmartins.sa.edu.au
  • completing the absentee form on the School Stream App located under the 'forms' banner

College administration is required to follow up regular absences from school and in extreme cases report truancy to the relevant department.

Extended Absences From School

If families are planning an extended family holiday or if a child is likely to be away from school for an extended period of time (other than illness), new legislation now requires parents to apply to the Principal for periods of temporary leave greater than one week.
