Absences & Punctuality


If your child is going to be absent from school you must contact the College. Please advise us by one of the following methods:

Text Message: 0409 686 299
Phone: 9302 7100
Email: ashdale.sc.absentee@education.wa.edu.au
Online: ashdalesc.wa.edu.au (Absentee tab, bottom of the Home Page)


Please include your child’s name and year group in the message.



Children who arrive to school on time are more relaxed and feel more organised, so we encourage you to assist your child in learning skills that will enable them to be punctual.

Students who arrive at school after 9.00am must enter through Student Services with a written explanation for their lateness. Students will be issued with a late slip for entry into class. Students who do not have a written explanation for their lateness will be marked on the attendance register as unsatisfactory and parents will be contacted for an explanation.

Students arriving between 8.45am and 9.00am must go directly to their Mentor class, or their first lesson on a Wednesday.

Senior school students who attend a study period must sign in and out of the College through Student Services.
