Every Day Counts


​Did you know that higher school attendance at school is on average associated with higher achievement?

Attendance is important.  Every day counts! 

As an example, if a student misses one day a fortnight of school, over 13 years of schooling, that equates to 1.5 years!  That is the equivalent of only  finishing to Year 11.
