Notify the school by phone before 9:30am on any day your child is absent from school. It is essential that when your child returns to school they have a note confirming the dates and reasons for their absence (e.g. sick, leave for family reasons). Unexplained absences of more than three days will be followed up with a letter home.

Allergy Friendly School
Namadgi School is an allergy friendly school. This is to provide protection for children who have severe allergic reactions to nuts and nut products. Our canteen menu will aim to be nut free and parents are asked to provide nut free food for their child's morning tea and lunch.
