Students must attend school regularly so they can achieve their educational best and increase their career and life options.
In NSW, all children from the age of 6 are legally required to attend school or be registered for home schooling through the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). All students must complete Year 10, or its equivalent and remain in school, employment or training until they turn 17.

As well as following the department’s operational policies, we have developed frameworks for our students in line with our school’s values and commitments.
Mobile phone policy
At Grahamstown Public School we recognise that many students and their families own a mobile phone. We also recognise that some parents and guardians request that their child or children bring a mobile phone to school for before and after school safety and security reasons.
