No child is allowed to leave the school grounds during the day without written permission from a parent.
In the interests of safety we seek the co-operation of all parents to let us know of children who are obviously out of school without permission. It is better to be overcautious than to fail to report to us, as a child's safety may be at stake.
If any child is required by parents to leave the school between 9.00am and 3.00pm a signed and dated note must be sent to the class teacher. It is preferable for parents to personally call for children for such school absences. ALL students must be signed out of the school through the front office using the sign out book.
It is very important to recognise that developmental learning is an on-going process and it is vital that effective liaison between the Preschool and the Primary School and the Primary School and the High School is maintained.
Regular, open communication with, and visits between the Preschool and High Schools is an integral part of Gilmore Primary School's efforts in this area.
Your child’s name should be marked clearly on all personal belongings, particularly clothing. Unclaimed belongings are kept in the Lost Property Box located outside the canteen in the school hall and may be checked at any time. All lost property left at the end of each term is donated to local charities.
We encourage you to provide a healthy lunch for your child in a named lunch box. Please keep packaging and wraps to a minimum. For more information, please refer to the canteen menu.
