What is required if my son/daughter is away from college? If a student is sick or absent from college for any reason please phone or email the college as early as possible. If a student is to be away for more than one week parents must write to the Principal for permission.
Parents must apply to the Principal in writing at least 10 days prior to the absence. The Principal will determine whether the absence from college is justified or unjustified. Please refer to the Education Act 1989, No 80 (as at 01 Feb 2011) Sections 27,29, and 34.
When students are absent from college they are missing valuable learning time, that may contribute towards NCEA assessments and this may affect achievement in NCEA. Overseas holidays in term time are likely to be deemed an unjustified absence.
