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 deeded necessary.

Enrolment Policy


Our school follows the ACT Department of Education and Training 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 Departmental Policy.

Equity Fund


To ensure access and equity in the provision of education, like all government schools Fadden 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 beyond the school grounds. 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 placed in the child’s unit box in the front foyer. Individual receipts will be issued for amounts more than $10. Alternatively, payment can be made through a family transaction statement which is sent home each term.
