Student Identity Cards

Written by Belinda Gosling on . Posted in Archived News, Parent News, School News, Student News

Students are all issued with identity cards when they come into HDHS. These also work as cashless catering cards for the canteen. Students are expected to have these cards on them at all times whilst they are in school.

In future to comply with examination regulations  cards will  have to be placed on examination desks as proof of identity for all internal and external exams.

Please can parents/carers support us in ensuring that students carry their cards at all times.
