The college is continuing in 2018 to offer flexible delivery of classwork when a teacher is absent.

For some classes, when a teacher is absent, notification will be given to students through Google Classroom, and work will be assigned to students as the lesson for that day.

The Library will be available for students to work in and to access computers. Clarification about the assigned work can be had from the executive teacher for that subject area or from the classroom teacher on their return.

Students should check the account linked to their Google classroom regularly, or set up email forwarding so that notifications can be easily received. Email/contact details should be kept up to date with the school.

If your family has opted out of Google Classroom, then the absent teacher will email the student the work for completion. Teachers will inform student services, and attendance will show “I” (sanctioned program) for that lesson.

The assigned work is a replacement for a class; failure to complete the work will result in an unexplained absence for that lesson.

This page is designed for administrative information for parents.

Student Absences

Staff at UC Senior Secondary College use SENTRAL to maintain and manage student class attendance.

SENTRAL provides  notification of student attendance for parents, students and teachers, ensuring that all members of our community are aware of student absence from class.

Parents/carers may notify the college of a student absence using one of these methods:

  1. Written absence explanation using the Notification of Absence form or other note.
  2. Explanation of absence via the Lake G email –
  3. Telephoning the Front Office. A note will be required to formalise the notification in college records.

When explaining an absence, please provide all of the following information:

  • Student name
  • Parent/carer name
  • Mobile contact
  • Date and time of absence
  • Explanation/reason for absence

Dress and Uniform

There is no formal uniform at Lake G. However the appearance and clothes worn by students must be appropriate to the academic purposes of school.

In specialist classes students must meet footwear and dress requirements to participate in class.

For general academic classes clothing should be comfortable for the student and for the teacher and other students in the class.

Students may be requested to change clothing where this standard is not met.
