We encourage all our kids to come prepared with their Greek Schoolbag.

perhaps a hidden note telling your child how much you love them and proud they are learning Greek
What should I leave at home?
anything you don't want lost or stolen
anything that will distract from learning
electronic devices that have not been approved by your teacher for use during lessons (this includes mobile phones and tablets)
Please ensure all items that are allowed to be brought to school are clearly labelled with your child's name in case they are misplaced.
Can we bring electronic devices like mobile phones and tablets?
Your child's teacher will discuss with them if electronic devices are allowed to be used during lessons as an aid to learning.
However, this will only be allowed in accordance with our Bring Your Own Device Policy (BYOD) and we reserve the rights to remove any electronic device from your child during lessons if they are in breach of this policy (devices will be returned at the end of class).
All mobile phones must be kept on silent and vibration off during class.
We encourage all electronic devices to be insured for damage or theft as we take no responsibility for lost or damaged items.
