Absences

If a student is absent through illness or another reason, her parent/guardian is to ring or email the College answer phone in the morning(s) before 8.45am.

Phone: 0064 4 495 9182
Email: absences@qmc.school.nz

A note may be requested if parents cannot be contacted on the day of the absence.

If a student feels ill during the day, she must see the School Nurse (who is also the Attendance Registrar). The Nurse will contact the caregiver and ensure that the student signs out at Reception before she goes home.

Unless the student has prior approval, no student is to leave school or phone her parents to collect her without permission from the School Nurse.

If a student has a doctor or dentist appointment, she must bring a note from a parent to the Form Teacher. The Form Teacher signs the note which the student must present to the Reception when she signs out.

Other absence requests, e.g. half day, go via the Form Teacher to the Dean who may discuss with the Head of School.

For anticipated absences of one day, or more, prior written approval must be obtained from the Principal by the parents. If approval is given, this will be confirmed by letter or email from the Principal.

If a student is late to Period 1, she must report to Reception before going to class. She must only be admitted to class with a late slip from Reception.

Data Office

The data office ensures all information about our students and their families is up to date and correct. It is imperative that all caregiver information is kept up to date on our database. If you have moved, switched emails or place of work, please email data@qmc.school.nz.

Health Centre

The College has a registered nurse and a guidance counsellor who are located in the Craven Wing opposite C1.

Students can see the Nurse at any time between 8.30am and 3.30pm. Their class teacher must give permission.

The Guidance Counsellor is available to all students who may want to speak to someone when they need support or just want to talk something through. Students are able to contact our Guidance Counsellor for an appointment via email: joanna.logan@qmc.school.nz, or text message: 022 622 3282. Meeting with the Guidance Counsellor is free, and appointments are made during school hours. Click here for more information about Guidance Counselling at QMC.

The Nurse (also the Attendance Registrar) checks the absences for the College and if a student goes home during the day, notifies the appropriate Form Teacher.
