|School Calendar: Sept 2019- June 20
The school year is relatively short at 183 days. Therefore, we strongly discourage parents from taking children out of school for prolonged holidays. Please note that absences in excess of 20 days in one academic year must be reported to the National Educational Welfare Board (N.E.W.B).
Parents will receive a telephone call from the school when their child has missed 15 days.
Parents or guardians are now obliged by law to provide a written explanation of their child’s absence to the school.
Please ensure you also send a note to your child’s teacher if for any reason your child has to leave school during the school day i.e. to attend an appointment, and they must be signed out in the Register in the Office by a Parent or Guardian only.
