At Durack, in 2015, the students' overall attendance rate was 93%.
This seems like a "high score". If you saw 93% on a report card.... WOW!! If you think about the rate though, it means, on average, each student was away about 1 day in every 14.. However there are many students who are rarely absent. So, even accounting for normal numbers of children who fall ill, there must be quite few children who are not at school one or more days every week.
This adds up over years, and could mean a child has missed over a year of learning and being taught during their Primary School years.
The ideal for us is
‘Every day, in every classroom every student is learning and achieving’. They
As part of our School Wide Positive Behaviour program, there are a few ways we are encouraging the students to be at school, learning.
