Aquinas College regards attendance as a fundamental part of the Student College agreement and an important prerequisite for the highest levels of achievement. All staff adopt a consistent and transparent approach and expectations are clearly communicated to students and parents.
Students must attend all lessons and we ask them to treat college as they would their part-time job. Students should be on time and ready to work. Attendance is the student’s responsibility and they should be able to account for all lessons. If students miss a lesson they will get a text stating which lessons that they have missed. They must go and find the teacher to explain why they have missed the lesson and catch up with any work missed. Continued poor attendance will result in them losing their place on the course and could lead to them losing their place at Aquinas.
