Ear-rings

For safety reasons, only stud or sleeper type ear-rings are permitted.


Emergency Contact

If a child becomes ill at school, or is injured, an effort will be made to contact parents immediately. If parents cannot be reached the child's emergency contact will be phoned. If this is also unsuccessful, the school will then obtain medical assistance if this is deemed necessary.


Enrolment Policy

Our school follows the ACT Education and Training Directorate enrolment policy. Children must be five years of age on or before 30 April the year they enter kindergarten. For further information go to the School Policy.


Equity Fund

To ensure access and equity in the provision of education, like all government schools Forrest has established an Equity Fund to support the needs of students who might not otherwise be in a position to take advantage of the opportunities provided by their school.


Excursions

'Day' Excursions and Performances - during the year teachers may organise half day or day long excursions for particular age groups. These excursions form an integral part of the learning program. On occasions, again to complement our teaching program, we will arrange for visiting speakers or groups to perform at the school. Details of times etc and a permission note will be sent home to parents for all excursions.

Payment Procedures for Excursions, Performances and Camps All money for excursions, performances, camps, etc. should be placed securely in an envelope and clearly labelled and given to the front office first thing in the morning. Individual receipts will be issued for amounts $10 and over.
