Leaving School Early

Schools (boards, principals, and individual teachers), along with parents and guardians, are responsible for making sure students attend school regularly.

Under sections 36, 48, 49 and 242 of the Education and Training Act 2020, every school board must take all reasonable steps to make sure students attend school when it's open.

We are aware of a number of students seeking to leave school early on a regular basis for a variety of reasons, mostly sporting or cultural activities. In certain instances this may be OK but in every instance of this you must complete the Seeking Exemption from Instruction form for Fraser to consider.

Just to be clear, this is not for one-off situations such as medical appointments or a one-off important event.
