Why Attendance Matters

Thank you to all parents that completed their uniform orders within the last fortnight. These are now available for pick up from the front office. Please remember that any item that is incorrect can be returned if the original tags are still attached. 

This week we are presenting some information for parents. Regular attendance at school is essential for your child to achieve their educational best and increase their career and life options. Jasper Road Public School works in partnership with parents to encourage and support regular attendance of children and young people. When your child attends school every day, learning becomes easier and your child will build and maintain friendships with other children.   

Missed days at school add up! Attached are two important documents that explain the importance of attending school everyday and punctuality. Every class, every day will complete essential phonics reading instructions in the morning and being just 5 minutes late can mean that your child will miss out. The early years of school are essential to build the foundations of learning and attendance is a key factor for learning success.  

Also attached this week is a page with ideas, links and curriculum information. Parents are encouraged to look through the information and use anything appropriate.  

Below are information brochures from Camp Australia and Inspire, who are the two main providers of 'out of school hours' care.
