Punctuality is most important. Latecomers must go to the office accompanied by a parent, give a reason for lateness and receive a late note before going to class. This information is then recorded in the Class Roll. Department officers from the Home School Liaison Program regularly check rolls and where attendance is a problem, work with schools, staff, families and students to improve a student’s attendance record.
 
Any person wishing to take a student from school during normal hours must notify the school, even if you intend to return to school before the end of the school day. You must report to the school office to obtain a release note. This procedure is to protect students from wrongful removal and should be respected and observed by parents.
 
Under no circumstances will a student be allowed to leave the school by themselves, or wait for a parent/caregiver outside the school grounds. Students must be collected from the school ground/classroom and the proper procedures followed.
 
At the time of collecting your child, please contact the class teacher, particularly if this occurs during recess or lunch.
 
 

Changes to Personal Details

It is of paramount importance that all details relating to a student’s welfare be correct and up to date. The office must be advised immediately of any changes to home, mobile or business numbers, address, email address, as well as emergency contact names and numbers. It is also important to inform the school of other general procedures such as arrangements for picking up student. Notification of changed custody arrangements is also critically important. 

 

Newsletters

Each Thursday the Amity Newsletter is emailed to all families. This newsletter is our communication to you. Please take the time to read it and diarise important dates.
