Detentions – Years 9-12
After school detentions are held from 3:15pm-4:15pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays (details in daily notices).
An after school detention is issued when a student does not show up for a teacher’s detention or by form teachers for unexplained absence from a class (i.e. truancy) and for persistent lateness. Staff may give some indication beforehand to the student of what work is expected to be completed in the detention, e.g. catching up on specific work missed, relevant additional exercises. Students will be issued with work if none has been brought to detention. Students may also be asked to complete school service tasks during detention.
Notices will remind students who have detention. Non-attendance at detention is followed up by the dean and deputy principal.
