At Boulder Primary School, we live by the motto ‘Every Day Counts’.

Developing the habit of going to school every day is vitally important so your child does not miss out on important ideas, concepts, knowledge and skills they need for future learning.

Going to school every day helps children learn the important life skill of ‘showing up’ – at school, at work, to sport and other commitments.

Did You Know?

  • Many concepts, such as Literacy and Numeracy, are taught in sequence. This means that if your child is away, it will be difficult to catch up later.
  • The Western Australian Telethon Kids Institute has found that the attendance habits set in Kindergarten and Pre-Primary are likely to continue throughout a child’s school life, so it is important for them to go to school every day.
  • The School Education Act 1999 requires all enrolled students to attend every day that their school is open. Failure to comply can result in charges being laid.
