The policy below is copied from the school diary, and is applicable to every piece of work a student submits.

Deadline Policy
All assignments must be handed in on time. This is an equity issue.
* If you are absent on the day of the deadline you must hand it in early, send it in with a sibling or parent, or email it to the teacher¹ and hand in a hard copy the next school day.
* To obtain an extension, you must negotiate with your teacher in advance of the due date. No extensions can be negotiated on the due date.
* Computer breakdown and printer failure are unacceptable excuses for work not being handed in. Students can hand in a disk or flash drive, or email work to teachers¹. As all work must be drafted, drafts can be submitted if the computer fails at the last minute. It is recommended that files being used for work in progress are stored on a computer hard drive or on the school network
* If there is a genuine reason for an emergency extension, a note from your parent/guardian must be brought in on the due day explaining the circumstances.
* An absence of three or more school days requires a medical certificate, which must be presented to the SACE Coordinator by Senior School students (years 10, 11 and 12) or Home Group teacher for Middle School students (years 7, 8 or 9)
* If a task is not handed in on the due date the following will occur in addition to a note in your diary:plagiarism_nite.gif
Years 7, 8 and 9: 15% deduction when submitted one day late
30% deduction when submitted two days late
A zero will be recorded if more than two days late
Years 10, 11, 12: A zero will be recorded in line with the SACE Board’s Assessment Declaration signed by all Senior School students
