Home School Liaison Personnel are authorised attendance officers (employed by the Department of Education and Training) who monitor and promote school attendance.
Following Department of Education and Training guidelines, Home School Liaison Officers may approach students of compulsory school age who are not at school during school hours.
When a student is approached by the HSLO a photo identification badge will be shown to the student and a current leave pass will be requested.
If a current leave pass is shown this is the end of the matter. If a student is unable to present a leave pass they will be directed to return to school and their name and details will be immediately phoned to their school for follow-up action.
The home school liaison can be contacted directly on 02 4821 8559 to offer assistance on attendance issues and concerns.
