Student Absence

The College is rolling out new methods to assist Parents / Carers to inform the school of their son’s absence. Parents / Carers can either:

  1. Send a text to 0416 905 246,
  2. Email student.absences@ipc.qld.edu.au,
  3. Call the school on 07 4796 0222 and leave a voice message or
  4. Online Web form located below.

When recording or typing an absence message can you please include your son’s Full Name, Year Level, House, and state the reason for his absence.

If your child is absent for more than one day, please phone the school and speak to one of the receptionists.

All absentee messages should be into the school before 8:30 for processing and around 10:30am a text message will be sent to the Parent / Carers to verify the authenticity of the absence messages received. This confirmation text message can be ignored if you have already made contact with the school.

 "[NAME] is marked absent from IPC today. If you have not contacted us please ring 4796 0222"

If you have issues with the new procedures can you please contact the school.
