Attendance and absence info

WHSPA records attendance each day at Roll Call which is held at  8.50am. Parent/Carers should ensure their child attend school each day unless there is a valid reason not to do so.

Parents/Carers should advise the school immediately when their child will be absent to avoid confusion and to ensure the child's absentee records are correct.

This can be done by phoning 4229 6844, email wollongong-h.school@det.nsw.edu.au or by forwarding a note with your child on their return to school. Please find below a document which provides blank forms for the parent/carer to print and complete in the following circumstances:

  • Full Day Absences
  • Late Arrivals
  • Leave Early

Absence Note Proforma
