Band

Students at Forrest Primary School have opportunities to participate in the ACT Instrumental Music Program (IMP) including the School Band in Years 5 and 6.


Before/After/Vacation School Care

After School Care is organised and provided by the Forrest Primary School P & C Association. Children enrolled with the Activity Centre proceed directly to the After School Care area when dismissed from class, are checked in, have afternoon tea, and are then involved in art, craft and indoor or outdoor games or excursions, under the supervision of the coordinator and centre staff. Further information and enrolment forms, are available on the FASC webpage.


Bike Safety

The Federal Police advise that children under Year 3 or 4 (about 8 or 9 years) should not ride a bike without an adult riding/walking alongside. Child ability to gauge distances accurately develops at about 8 or 9 thus younger children are at risk to themselves if riding alone. All children riding to school should wear a correctly fitted helmet and bikes should be stored in the bike racks with a lock.


Book Week

Each year, schools and public libraries across Australia spend a week celebrating books and Australian authors and illustrators. Classroom teachers, teacher librarians and public librarians develop activities, offer competitions and tell stories relating to a theme to highlight the importance of reading.
