From time to time students and parents at Gilmore Primary will be involved in activities which may be of interest to the Media or may be useful in promoting the school through information brochures or through the Education and Training Directorate’s website and/or our school’s website. To acknowledge and celebrate student achievement, children’s work, including writing, artwork, photographs of school/class activities may be used from time to time e.g. in our newsletter. Only the child’s first name will be attached to any information/children’s work that is accessible by the wider community. To assist them in observing and understanding strategies students use to achieve specific outcomes, staff at the school may also wish to video students engaging in learning tasks.
In order to ensure that no child or parent/carer is filmed or photographed against their wishes, the school has established a register of students and parent/carers who are not to be filmed or whose photograph and work are not to be used for the above activities.

Parents of children with life-endangering conditions (eg. allergies, chronic asthma, etc) are asked to provide a recent photograph of the student with a description of the child's condition attached, including an emergency treatment plan to follow if required.
This information is then displayed in the first aid and staff rooms for reference in an emergency. Find the appropriate Emergency Treatment Plan on our Forms page.
Students requiring medication during the day need to have their medicines labelled (name, dose, times for administering). Parents need to inform teachers and front office staff, of the medication students are taking. All medications are stored at the front office (except for Asthma puffers). In the event of Asthma a plan will be required and parents will provide information to staff re administration.
