Immunisation

The Health and Community Services Directorate advises that all children attending school in the ACT should be immunised against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, polio, measles, mumps, rubella and HIB (Haemophilus influenza type b). We would ask that you check your child's present immunisation status to see whether it is complete for his/her age. ACT Public Health regulations require schools to request proof of up-to-date immunisation when enrolling. Failure to provide this may result in your child being excluded from school should an outbreak of an infectious disease occur. A copy of exclusion periods for students with infectious disease is available at Policies A-Z

. Parents are asked to adhere closely to these requirements unless medical advice to the contrary is provided in writing.

Information Night

An information evening for parents will be arranged about the 2nd week of Term One. Each unit will explain to parents their organisation, expectations and any plans for excursions etc. Costly excursions such as camps and excursions will be notified at this stage to allow parents to budget for them.

Integration of Children from the Learner Support Unit (LSU)

Garran has one class of children with intellectual disability. These children are integrated wherever possible into mainstream classes.

Interviews

Interviews regarding progress or information that may impact on your child's learning may be held at any time at the request of a parent or teacher. An appointment is essential to ensure a suitable, mutually convenient time.
