It is important that children are safe at Postgate and to help us make sure this happens we appreciate families making sure that children who are going to be away for either one day or many have been noted at the school office. 


If your child is going to absent for any reason there are a few options available:

Option 1: Call school ( 235 9358) and leave a message with Jacqui or another staff member.
