Dear Elevation Secondary College Community,
Finishing the year strongly
As we near the end of the year, it can feel tempting to ease up on expectations and coast through to the festive season. Schools work really hard right up to the last day of school.
There is no easing up. Attendance counts all year round and we appreciate families ensuring students attend school every single day unless they are ill.
We ask parents to check with their children that they are wearing the correct uniform, have a separate book for every subject, and ensure they arrive at school by 8:30am having slept for 9 hours and having eaten some breakfast.
Our Behavioural Expectations remain our priority in everything we do at school. As such, academic rigour will continue and our students will be required to live and breathe our expectations of Aim High, Work Hard and Be Good.
We look forward to students striving to achieve their very best until the final school bell of the year.
Attendance & Early Leavers Reminder
School attendance is very important.
Students are required to attend school for the entire day. If there is an unavoidable reason for a student to leave school early on a particular day (such as for a medical appointment) a signed note from home must be provided.
Pickup times should coincide with recess and lunch.
- Students brings a note from home explaining the absence and the intended departure time (recess or lunch). The note must be signed and dated by a parent/guardian.
- Student presents the note from home to the Mini School Admin Office before Mentor Group
- Students receives a signed Early Leaver note from the Mini School.
- At recess or lunch- the student brings the Early Leaver note to the Administration Office and signs out.
- Student is picked up.
If a pickup time can only be during a timetabled period, the student must show their signed Early Leaver note to their classroom teacher at the designated time and then present to the office to be picked up.
School staff will not be collecting students from classes during timetabled periods.
It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that they arrive at the office for pickup at the designated time.
Learning is extremely important at Elevation Secondary College. Please note that staff cannot collect your child or put an announcement over speakers during class time.
