The National Education Welfare Board (NEWB) are the government body assigned to ensure that children are attending school and their welfare is being met. Schools take the attendance each day and when a child is absent, a school must state the reason to the NEWB.
The reason for this absence must come in writing from the family. To facilitate this we now accept the completion of this online form or a written note to your child's class teacher.
Please note the school may follow up and check absences as they deem necessary.
