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.
Fadden Primary 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 please click on the following link. Education and Training Department.
Fadden Primary School has an equity fund that is used to financially assist families with the costs associated with attending camps, excursions and buying uniforms, if needed. Parents who require assistance from this fund should approach the Principal for confidential assistance.
Evacuation and Lock Down Drills
Emergency evacuation and lockdown drills are necessary for the safety of all those within the building and will be conducted each term to ensure all staff and children are familiar with the routine.
Excursions and Camps
Teachers regularly organise half day or day long excursions for their classes or one to two overnight camps. These excursions and camps form an integral part of the learning program. On occasions, to complement our teaching program, we will arrange visiting speakers or groups to perform at the school.
Excursion and camp details are sent home to parents for all excursions beyond the school grounds. Notes and contributions 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.
Receipts will be issued for amounts greater than $10. Alternatively, contributions can be made via Quickweb (preferred method) on the Fadden Primary School website, Bank Transfer or EFTPOS.
