Payment of School Fees
School fees and other fees may be paid at any Campus of the school. EFTPOS facilities are available. Fees can also be paid online. See this website for further infomation.
Reporting Student Absences
Parent/Caregivers must report the reasons for all student absences to class teachers who are required to keep a daily attendance roll.
Occasionally families take family holidays during Term time. Permission for students under the age of compulsion to be absent from school must be obtained from Heads of Campus/Campus Coordinators. Absences up to one month can be authorised at Campus level. For absences over one month, special permission must be obtained from the Regional Director and an education plan developed to maintain the students’ learning program. Request forms are available at your child’s Campus.
The Strathalbyn 7-12 Site has implemented a SMS messaging system to report to parents when a student is absent from school. The number is 0488 063 063
Accurate Contact Details
Parent/caregivers provide emergency contact numbers to the school when enrolling students. We require all changes to be given to the school so that our records can be up to date. This is a child safety issue.
Visitors to the campuses
We require all visitors (parents, caregivers, contractors, maintenance staff, etc) to the Campuses to “sign in” and “out” whenever visiting the school. This can be done quickly and efficiently at the Front Office of each Campus. Parents and caregivers are asked not to go directly to classrooms but to “check in” at the Campus Office. There are many times in the school day when students and staff leave their normal classroom location. Generally the Campus Front Office staff can assist locating students.
No Smoking Zones
All public schools in South Australia are SMOKE FREE ZONES (total grounds and buildings) for the safety, health and well-being of our students.
Use of campus facilities
Generally the Campus grounds are available for safe, sensible and appropriate recreational use by the community. Small-wheeled vehicles (Skates –inline etc, skateboards etc) are not permitted to be used on Campus grounds. In Strathalbyn the Alexandrina Council has established a “skate park” on the Langhorne Creek Road for such activities.
