Student absences


​At Ormiston State School, our aim is to maximise student achievement. One way to facilitate this is through attendance and participation. Our target this year is to ensure there are no unexplained absences for any student at our school.

If your child is absent, please advise the school of the reason for the absence via one of the following means:

  • Telephone the school: Student absence hotline (07) 3824 9166.
  • Email the school:

  • Speak to a staff member (office or class teacher).

  • Send a note with your child on the day they return.

Student absences can also be advised in advance where known (e.g. medical appointments, holidays). The school will follow up any absences where a reason is not supplied, this process will allow our school to achieve our goal of no unexplained absences for any student.
