ATTENDANCE AND ATTITUDE REQUIREMENTS FOR PARTICIPATING
IN CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES FOR THE COLLEGE
A condition for participating in co-curricular activities for the college is the student will have the correct attitude towards their schooling and at the same time will have acceptable attendance. If either of these is not the case, students will be withdrawn from their activity as set out below.
If there is a serious concern about a student’s attendance they will be withdrawn from the activity. This would happen after there have been discussions with parents by the HOH about attendance concerns and the poor attendance continues. This includes period by period absences or non attendance at school.
- Step 1: Withdrawn from the activity for 1 week
- Step 2: After further interventions the attendance continues to be an issue, the student is withdrawn from the activity for 2 weeks.
- Step 2: After further interventions the attendance continues to be an issue, the student is withdrawn from the activity for the rest of the ‘season’

- 1st stand down – the student is withdrawn from the activity while on stand down
