School Attendance

Earlier this year it was explained in the newsletter that there will be a new Attendance Policy for Victorian schools.
We all know that daily attendance is important for all children and young people to succeed in education and to ensure they do not fall behind both socially and developmentally. School participation maximises life opportunities for children and young people by providing them with education and support networks. School helps people to develop important skills, knowledge and values that set them up for further
learning and participation in their community.

Students are expected to attend Brunswick East Primary School during normal school hours every day of each term unless there is an approved exemption from school attendance for the student, this includes holidays or illness.

The first thing that we will be doing at Brunswick East Primary School to implement this Policy is to ask parents to notify us of student absences by 8:45am on the first day of absence.

Do this by emailing  or ringing Brunswick East Primary School on 9387 3361.

3-Way Conferences for Semester 1, 2018

3-way conferences are on 21, 25, 27 June.

Information will be out soon so that you are able to book a time.

For those of you who are new to 3-way conferences – this conference is a celebration of the student learning and reporting of learning growth.

If you are away during the 3-way conferences, as a few families will be, I am sorry but teachers will not be able to make up these conferences.  It is important that the teacher’s hours are not extended beyond what is reasonable.
