Absence & Illness

Attendance is important to all students’ learning.  Students need to be at school five days a week, on time.  If your child/ren are unable to attend for any period of time it is vital that you notify the school.


You can do so by:

  • Phoning 8983 7700
  • Emailing karama.school@ntschools.net
  • Visiting our front office
  • Sending a written note


For students requiring improved attendance, families may be contacted via the following means:

  • A phone call or a home visit
  • A ‘blue note’ indicating times when students absences have not been notified


Punctuality is expected of all students. Any child arriving at school after 8:15 is recorded as late on the Class Roll in accordance with NT Department of Education
