Parental Workshop  – Monday 24th and Tuesday 25th at 5.30 pm

  • Next workshops (Monday 24th & Tuesday 25th September) will focus on cyber safety, external examinations, senior high school curriculum, safeguarding and mental health. All parental workshops aim to provide our parents with up-to-date information on education and current trends in learning. We do appreciate that you are extremely busy however, your participation in these workshops is essential to ensure your son/daughter has support needed to achieve success. Please note that the workshops are not suitable for children to attend.

Individual Educational Plan – IEP

  • All GU students follow an Individual Educational Plan drafted by teachers and specialists. Targets for different subjects will be available for parents on School Portal. Students are informed of their targets, they are also frequently reminded what they need to do to improve their performance and achieve better results.
  • Parents are invited to discuss their child’s IEP during individual Parents-Teacher meeting.

Health and Safety

  • We work very hard to ensure your children are always safe. Please help us by following simple school rules:
  • A bell will be installed to ensure guests and visitors are able to announce their presence. Guards have a remote control to open the main door even if they are busy in other areas of the parking lot. Main gate to the Green Unit must remain locked with exception to break times.
  • Visitors and guests should be escorted to their meetings at all times. List of appointments will be shared with security guards, Mrs. Joyce and main school reception. All visitors and guests must have a badge on a lanyard available in main school reception.

GU nurse

  • We have an inhouse nurse – Mrs. Shanthi who is responsible for our students’ health. If you have any concerns regarding your son/daughter health, please contact Mrs. Shanthi who will, if needed, advise you regarding other medical referral. Mrs. Shanthi should also have updated medical files therefore is there is anything important, please inform us immediately, this way we will be able to assist your child in a better way.
