Lloyd Rayney had asked his young daughters' private school to treat them the same as other students after their mother's murder, the Supreme Court has been told.
Penrhos College's 2007 principal Graham Rixon's police statement explained how Mr Rayney sought to ensure his children's school environment stayed as normal as possible after the loss of their mother, Corryn Rayney.
Mr Rixon said Mr Rayney asked in late August of that year that no attention be drawn to the girls, then aged 10 and 13. He also asked that elder daughter Caitlyn be given any work she might have missed.
"The understanding is that Mr Rayney had requested that no one speak to his daughters about their mother and events that had taken place," Mr Rixon said.
The court has heard the Rayneys were devoted parents who valued their children's education.
It was also told Caitlyn would be going to Oxford University in England after testifying next week. Her sister Sarah will also testify.
A teenage friend of Caitlyn told police that Caitlyn noticed her mother was not at home when she was dropped off after a concert on the night Corryn Rayney went missing.She said Mr Rayney had let the girls into the house and was wearing what the witness thought to be pyjamas.
