All students from Year 7-13 are expected to go through the process of officially clearing themselves from the school.
In the first instance, students must collect a Leaver's Clearance Form from their Dean and have it signed by all those indicated on the form, once all school property has been returned.
All students are eligible to receive a Leaving Certificate which is an official record of the length of secondary education a pupil has received. For the certificate, secondary education starts in Year 9.
Parents/caregivers and students should note that almost all apprenticeships and many other occupations require a minimum of two years' secondary education before an application will be considered. Students are required to be at school until they reach their sixteenth birthday.
