Rowena Public School

Respect For All


Regular attendance at school is an important element of each child’s education to ensure

satisfactory progress in all areas. If your child is absent from school for any reason, including wet weather, an explanatory note should be provided to school with your child upon their return to school. If an explanatory note is not provided to the school, a reminder will be sent home with the student(s) to the parent. It is essential that such notice is given, as all unexplained absences must be reported to the department.  The school is legally required to keep absence notes for seven (7) years from the date of issue.

Children may enrol in Kindergarten at the beginning of the school year if they turn five years of age on or before July 31st of that year. Documentation providing proof of age (birth certificate) and immunisation records are required when students are enrolled.

Students transferring from other schools can enrol any time throughout the year. Birth certificates and immunisation records are also required for new enrolments. An enrolment form must be completed prior to enrolment – please contact the school for appropriate paperwork.

During Term 4 a program for 2010 Kindergarten students will take place to familiarise those students with school routines and requirements. Information regarding Kinder orientation is provided to the local pre-school and to any other prospective enrolments upon request.
