It is compulsory that all students attend school every day. The expectation is that students maintain a 95% attendance rate. If your son is unable to attend school due to medical or otherwise justified reason, a parent must contact the school and leave the NAME, YEAR LEVEL of the student and the REASON for their absence.

Office number (09) 376 1287 (Dial 1 for Absence Line) or email [email protected].

Please be aware that parents will receive a text for lateness and absence, irrespective of whether a reason was provided. This is standard policy and allows both parents and staff to keep track of our young men’s attendance to support academic achievement.

Student Leave

The College expects family trips to be taken in the school holidays. However, if it necessary for the student to be away for an extended period of time (more than three school days) in term time, an application for leave must be made in writing by the parents to the Headmaster outlining “reasons for travel in school time” and “expected date of return”.
