Absences

Planning on being away?

If your child will not be attending school, please see the following procedures and let us know in advance. We appreciate it (plus it's the law)!
Let us know

Going to be away from school?

It is a government requirement that any absences from school be recorded by our staff.

General Absences

Please email absences@ics.nsw.edu.au or call 4239 5200 (choose Option 3) before 9.30am to register an absence.  In your email or phone message, please state your child's name and reason for the absence.

A signed note or email from a parent/guardian needs to be sent to the office when the student returns to school. Notes from the blue absence books (available at the office) may be used for this purpose. If you have already sent an email via the absences address to notify the school, no further action is necessary to resolve the absence.

Planned Absences

It is a government requirement that any planned absences from school (other than for illness) must be approved ahead of time by the Principal.

This includes holidays in term time and participation in elite sporting events, as well as other extracurricular opportunities, such as employment in the entertainment industry.

Please download, fill in and return the signed form to the school office as far in advance of the planned absence as possible. You will be informed of the outcome of your application, and if granted, will receive a Certificate of Exemption for your records.

We encourage the school community wherever possible to plan holidays during the gazetted school terms. Parents and guardians should be aware that exemption from school is not guaranteed to be granted by the Principal.
