From the Principal – Reporting student absence due to COVID and other illness

Thank you for your prompt communication with us in relation to student absences due to COVID and other illness.

We will soon be releasing updated information as a result of the recent State Government announcements. As the mask wearing mandate is changing as of Friday 29 April, it is important that we are able to accurately track student absence, especially for students who are COVID positive.

When advising a student absence or student COVID absence:

SMS/Text                         0400 207 306

Email                                australind.shs@education.wa.edu.au

Phone                               9797 4400, selecting option 2

Include                             Student name

                                        Student year 

                                        Reason – if COVID, please include the date your child was confirmed positive.

By including the date of when your child was confirmed positive, this will establish the period of quarantine and absence for attendance recording purposes, and we will not be required to contact you to obtain further information.

Thank you in anticipation of your continued support,



28 April 2022
