"Every Learner Every Day" - The Importance of School Attendance

 Regular attendance at school is critical to ensuring that every student has the kind of opportunities in life that he or she deserves. When students are not at school, they are missing out on so much. Without the knowledge, the skills or the support that schools are so good at providing, young people can get left behind and find themselves underprepared for a fast-paced and often very challenging world.

In 2017, St John Paul II Catholic College are lending our support to a campaign called ‘Every Learner, Every Day’, an initiative designed to all remind students and parents/caregivers why regular school attendance is so important. As part of this campaign, a range of resources and strategies will be made available to help parents/caregivers, if help is needed. We encourage you to think about the ideas suggested on the poster and to speak to your child about these messages.
