Buses and Parking

Information about school bus routes can be found at www.schoolbuses.wa.gov.au.

There is ample parking available at the school for dropping off and picking up your child.

Parking is available on Pendleton Street (off Wittenoon Street).

The PTA has recently made a large investment for the Town of Collie and as a result there will be changes to the school town bus services effective Monday 2 February 2015. This will include changes to bus routes, a fleet upgrade, installation of bus stops and the rebranding of services to TransCollie. At the commencement of Term 1, 2015 the current School Specials will be withdrawn and replaced with two new routes, 725 and 726. We understand this will be a change to some families, however the PTA believes the result will be an improved level of service for the entire community. The new services are planned to operate along similar routes and times to the current bus services and timetable and route information regarding the new services will be provided through the schools and available on the buses in the coming weeks.

Every Day Matters

Attendance at Collie Senior High School

Every day your child attends school matters. In secondary school this is even more important. Each day your child will learn something new so it is important to attend school every day. There is a direct correlation between attendance and achievement – which is why we place such importance on attendance at our school.

In Australia, attendance at school is compulsory from Pre-primary until the end of the year they turn 17 years of age.

From time to time your child may need to be absent from school. When this occurs please send a note of explanation to their Form Teacher when they return to school. If an absence is unexplained, we will contact you.

Teachers also appreciate, where possible, some advance notice of your child’s absence so they can prepare homework or make adjustments to their learning program.

Punctuality is also important. Your child is expected at school in time for the commencement of Period 1. If your child is late to school they require a note of explanation and to sign in at the front office on arrival. If your child has two unexplained late starts unfortunately they will receive a detention with our Deputy Principal.

If your child needs to leave school early

If your child is leaving early it is a legal requirement that you sign them out at the front office.

We are committed to ensuring your child is safe, so you should always let us know when and why they will be absent. When your child has left the school we do not hold a duty of care. Therefore it is important we communicate regarding your child’s attendance.  

Rewarding attendance

Because attendance is so important to your child’s success at school we have a reward program in place. When your child attends school 95% of the time or more, their name goes into a prize drawer. Prizes are awarded each semester for each year level.

Canteen

Our wonderful P&C Association kindly operates a canteen service which provides our students with an affordable range of healthy and filling foods. Profits from the canteen are used by the P&C to provide facilities and services that directly impact our students.

Please contact our canteen manager on 9735 1213 during school hours if you are able to volunteer any time to help out in the canteen.

Volunteers are urgently and desperately needed so please consider helping a little or a lot! Remember that the profits directly benefit your child. Lunch orders need to placed in person at the canteen before the start of school.

Price list

Lunch orders need to placed in person at the canteen before the start of school.

School Assemblies
