FLEXIBLE LEARNING at LAKE G

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 – LakeGStudentServices@ed.act.edu.au
  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

UC SSC Lake Ginninderra school board is reviewing the school guideline for dress and uniform. Education Directorate guidelines are here.

Send feedback to LakeG@ed.act.edu.au with subject line 'dress'.

Comment is invited on the following by September 30.

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.

The following guidelines outline expectations of students:

The UC Senior Secondary College Lake Ginninderra (UCSSCLG) dress guideline aims to account for the diverse nature of the school’s population and the economic, personal, social and cultural factors affecting students, staff and their families.

Students are expected to adhere to standards of cleanliness and dress that are compatible with the requirements of a positive and safe learning environment.

UCSSCLG students and staff have a responsibility to dress in a manner that avoids causing offence to others and abides by the safety requirements of particular courses.

Students representing the school at public events may be required to dress appropriately for the occasion.

UCSSCLG is a school promoting student wellbeing through numerous initiatives directed by the Education and Training Directorate such as the ‘SunSmart’ policy.  This encourages students to be sun safe when participating in outdoor activities.

Standards are defined as those generally acceptable to the community and suitable for the school setting.  In certain practical or specialised areas general safety and Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) rules must be applied to clothing and followed at all times, e.g. wearing enclosed footwear and appropriate attire around machinery.

If a student does not meet the expected dress standard they will be asked to change to more appropriate clothing and, if necessary, parents/carers will be contacted.
