leave of absence
  • Leave of absence may be granted to a pupil for a genuine reason but only on previous application, in writing from the parents or guardians.
  • If a pupil is absent through illness or any other reason, the Principal must be informed at once, and the pupil on returning to school must state the reason for absence on their relevant Leave Record. In case of illness, a medical certificate is essential, and fitness certificate as well, when the child returns to school.
  • A pupil who is absent for a month without previously informing the Principal and obtaining her permission, will have her name struck off the school rolls. The usual Entrance Fee is charged if she is re-admitted. Pupils must return to school after the holidays on the appointed day and be present on the closing day of each term. Any breach of this rule will be punished. In case of sickness the school authorities must be notified and a medical certificate produced.
  • Absence without leave for feasts, weddings and religious ceremonies will not be permitted.
  • Absence for more than three days from the opening day of school, renders a pupil liable to be struck off the rolls.
  • Non-Christians will be allowed sectional religious holidays, on previous written application from their parents only.
  • On National days every student is expected to be present in the school.

Absence for more than 3 to 4 days in the month will call for serious action.
