Student attendance

Education in New South Wales is compulsory for all children between the ages of six years and below the minimum school leaving age. The Education Act 1990 requires that parents ensure their children of compulsory school age are enrolled at, and regularly attend school, or, are registered with the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards for homeschooling.

Turramurra High School policy

When a student is absent from school, a verbal or written explanation must be provided to the school within seven days detailing the reason for that absence e.g. illness, injury etc. Notification can be by telephone, email or written note, preferably on the day of absence or the first day of their return. The school sends out SMSs daily (with rare exceptions) to parents of students who are absent without explanation.
