Attendance

Otonga School supports the Education Rotorua goals for school attendance: ·

  • Excellent attendance for the Rotorua District be classified at 100% for the year (0 days absence) ·       
  • Merit attendance be classified at 95% - 99% for the year (1 – 10 days absence) ·      
  • Satisfactory attendance be classified at 90% - 94% for the year (11 – 20 days absence)        

Students are required to attend school whenever schools are open. Regular attendance enhances students’ learning and is essential for their attainment of academic, cultural and social goals. We request parents to phone the school if their child is going to be absent, as we must follow up on every un-notified absence.
