Hardship & Special Cases

Parents who experience difficulty in paying enrolment fees due to hardship should contact the administrators of the Greek School to discuss their situation. 

ACT Government Subsidy

The ACT government provides the Greek School of Canberra a financial supplement under the ACT Community Language Schools program.

 

We ask that parents return their completed forms to us before the due date to allow our school to fund your kids learning future. 

We will offer a discount only to parents who have returned this form fully completed for each child enrolled by the due date.

What to Bring to Greek School

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

What should I pack?

  • bottle of water
  • pencil case with stationery (including colouring pencils, erasers, glue sticks, rulers etc)
  • Student’s Book (issued on the first week of Greek School)

  • Activity & Culture Book (issued on the first week of Greek School)

  • spare writing book or scrapbook 

  • any homework that has been issued for completion 

  • perhaps a hidden note telling your child how much you love them and proud they are learning Greek 


What should I leave at home?

  • toys 

  • 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 labeled 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 right 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.
