  • once in 5 weeks, teacher records it
  • second time in 5 weeks, parents are informed
  • third time in a 5 week period, the student is given an infringement.
  • Students are given plenty of time to produce assignments so consequently late assignments will attract a 10% penalty per day for up to 3 days. After this time the assignments still need to be completed and an infringement given.
