In the event of a student absence parents/caregivers can either phone the absence line direct dial (04) 939 5415 and leave a message, email the absence line at [email protected], or alternately, absences can be recorded via the College App.

When you return to school, a note must be provided explaining the absence and detailing the precise dates or times of absence. The note is to be signed by a parent or guardian and shown to the House Leader.

Any planned absence (e.g., dentist, doctor etc.) should as far as possible be in non-school times. If an appointment is unavoidably in school time, it must be pre-arranged with the Tutor Teacher or House Leader.

Any Leave from school other than compassionate or medical must be prearranged in writing with the Tumuaki I Rector.

If you are sitting an internally assessed course and have missed a test or unable to fully meet the conditions for the assessed period of work due to illness phone or email your subject teacher and then bring a Medical Certificate to your teacher upon return to the College.
