  1. Back in March son 3 had a tooth ach for a couple of days, kept him home. As with all tooth achs it settled down chased around for denist booking & there is a waiting list a mile long & same in other surounding towns .



    Just had a ph call, someone reported us to DOCS about it.

    Im pretty much fuming here right now. They should be out helping the kids which are born with a drug addiction to heron and such. Not chasing a tooth ach

  5. I presume the DOCS report is with reference to him not being at school, not some other matter?? At worst you should have had a visit from a DET HISLO officer to ascertain why he wasn't at school; there has been an arrant failure of procedure at the school and you should immediately contact your local DET office and ask to speak to the head honcho...

  8. Was clearly said the report was due to the toothach. School already knew why he wasnt there. At our High School any more then 2 days have to call in & inform, & for Yr 11 & 12 have to call them the 1st day.

  10. I don't know how it works in NSW, but in vic we have mandatory reporting too.
    However, there has to be grounds for it and this is not grounds!
    I would be demanding a case review (if you can there).

    Sorry to hear about this. Its absolute, baseless crap and someone needs a boot where it hurts! :evil:

  14. Not much one can say, but thanks for your comments.


    :LOL: Wait till they find out even the place they said to ring has a waiting list. Bet that will go down like a ton of bricks. But knowing this lot it will still be our fault.

  16. I does just sound like they're covering their ar$es and either the DOCS will come and see all's fine without a hassle, or the school will get a kicking for jumping the gun on reporting. It's natural to worry, but it doesn't sound like there's any real threat. Chin up and go for a ride :grin:
