Working hard on student non-attendance

Posted on: 6 June 2021, 7:24pm

The Remote Student and Attendance Strategy (RSAS) and Parent and Community Engagement (PaCE) teams have been working hard with the NT Education Department staff to encourage long-term non-attenders to return to school and gain that valuable education that will aid them into the future to get employment and become better leaders of tomorrow.

Throughout the Barkly Region we have a large number of children that are long term non-attenders for a variety of reasons and the time and effort that it takes to engage with the student and families is very time consuming and sometime non-rewarding.
PaCE supervisor Allyson Croydon said it was the little wins they were grateful for, especially when they get children back to school and attending everyday is worth the effort the teams put in.  “We encourage parents that need help in dealing with their children not wanting to go to school to contact RSAS or PaCE for help,” she said. “We are here to help and are only a phone call or conversation away from helping you.”

If you need assistance getting your child to school, please call the office on 08 8962 3270.
