25B Release from school

The principal of a State school—

(a)

may, if satisfied that—

(i)

a student will receive outside the school tuition acceptable to the principal; and

(ii)

releasing the student would not result in a contravention of section 25(2),—

release the student from attendance at the school, for a period or periods agreed with a parent of the student, to receive the tuition (and, where appropriate, travel between the school and the place where the tuition is to be given):

(b)

may, if satisfied that—

(i)

a student has, on any day on which the school was open for instruction, been present at the school for 4 hours or more; and

(ii)

there are good reasons for the student to leave before the school closes on that day,—

let the student leave early on that day.
