Occasionally your daughter may
be straightforward and ask you to
stay home because she is behind
in her work and doesn’t want to get
‘in trouble’. It is not always easy
for parents to stand firm in this
circumstance. Often this problem
is of the student’s own making
and parents give a mixed message
if they condone a day away from
school to catch up. Rest assured
that staff set reasonable time
frames for the completion of work
and often class time is set aside to
work on assignments.

Absenteeism does not only affect
the individual, it can also have a
negative effect on the rest of the
class as a collective. Students who
are away impact on group work,
team building in class groups and
teaching time as staff re-teach the
absent student on their return.
Students with a high number of
unexplained absenteeism impede
their own learning and can exclude
themselves from undertaking
extension programs, such as
studying a VCE subject in Year 10,
regardless of their academic ability.

There is no “safe” threshold and
the effects of absence accumulate
over time (refer to chart on the
right). When young people are
taught that they need to 'show up'
for school and make a commitment
even if they feel anxious or
concerned, this positive mentality
aids academic and career success
and brings benefits in adulthood.

Safe Birthing Kits

On Thursday 22 June the Year 10’s helped us create a production line to assemble 1000 birthing
kits for Birthing Kit Foundation Australia. Each Year 10 class had two Year 11 girls manage and run
the day together with one volunteer from Zonta.
These kits are designed to save the lives of women and their babies in developing countries. Without these
simple birthing kits - which cost less than a cup of coffee - the mortality rates would be much higher.
The day ran very smoothly. Although it was pretty stressful at times, it was all worth it in the end. The chance to
do something that would have such an impact on so many women’s lives was amazing.
The day could not have run so well without the help of Pam Sloss, the Zonta volunteers and the VCAL teachers.
We would like to thank you for all of your hard work.
