Students are required to remain at school for the duration of the day. The Principal and Staff are responsible for the safety of students and are expected to exercise the care of a reasonable parent. If there is a specific reason why a student is to leave a note needs to be given to their corresponding Year Level Coordinator, before school, to receive a pass. At the time of departure each student needs to go via the office and sign out. For all last minute departures, all communication with the student should be organized through the office and the sign out process will be undertaken.

If parents need to contact children, or children need to contact parents, this should be done through the office. 



Parents can expect the following reports and assessments.

1. Interim Report (brief) at the end of Terms I and III.

2. Detailed written reports at the end of Term II (Semester 1) and Term IV (Semester 2).

Parent/Teacher Interviews will be held at the beginning of Term II and Term IV. Progress Reports can be issued at other times at the discretion of the School or on parents’ request (please contact the House Manager).


The following guidelines apply to assessment and deadlines for all electives:

• Class teachers will set clear due dates and deadline dates, with sufficient time to complete tasks.

• A due date is the time by which a piece of work must be submitted for a graded assessment

• A deadline date is the time by which a piece of work must be submitted to be considered for a pass.

• There will be no automatic granting of extensions.

• Students are able to re-submit inadequate work, if it is re-submitted before the deadline date.

• Late submissions after the due date will be ungraded and marked S (satisfactory) or N (unsatisfactory).

• Late submissions after deadline dates will be N (unsatisfactory).

• Students must record due dates and deadline dates in their student record book.



All staff and students at Kerang Technical High School have a right to work in a safe and caring environment in which discipline and welfare are seen as essentially inter-related.

Students have the right to learn, and teachers have a right to teach, in an atmosphere of order, co-operation and mutual respect. Consequently, students are expected to accept their share of responsibility for maintaining a productive educational and social environment.


The following principles aim to protect the rights of all members of our school community.

1. To sustain an environment free from dangerous or harmful substances.

2. To respect the physical and emotional rights, welfare, and property of other people.

3. To be educated in a secure environment without harassment and disruption and where interest, abilities and ambitions can be developed.

4. To act in a manner in all school activities that reflects well on ourselves and our school.

5. To attend all classes; be punctual and properly prepared for work, and in correct school uniform.

6. To observe the school rules and expectations.

7. V.C.E. students are expected to sign and adhere to a contract.

The Student Rights and Responsibilities are published annually in the Student Record Book and are on display near the School Office.


The following are strategies that will be adopted to promote an atmosphere in which personal responsibility and self-discipline in students will be fostered.

1. Encouraging students to recognise and respect the rights of others.

2. Promoting the values of honesty, fairness and respect.

3. Enhancing and encouraging parent, student and teacher contact.

4. Recognising and assisting students who encounter problems.

5. Developing a sense of community and pride in the school.

6. Recognising student achievement.
