Detentions may be issued for a range of inappropriate student behaviours and will be issued by teachers, student managers or members of the principal team.
Students may be detained for half of recess or lunchtime or for 45 minutes after school.
A detention notice will be issued to a student, given an after school detention, to notify the parent/guardian that the student is required to attend. Parents are asked to sign the form to indicate that they are aware of the detention. It should be noted that parental permission is not required for a detention to be given.
The College is aware that transport may be an issue and an after school detention may inconvenience a parent who has to pick up their child from school. We would encourage parents to challenge their child about the behavior that lead to the detention rather than the consequence.
