Will there be Kindergarten 2022 Parent Information Sessions?

We are keen to meet our 2022 parents and to share our amazing school with you all.  We will be holding the following Parent Information Sessions in our school hall:

Thursday 10 June 2021 - 10:30 am

Thursday 10 June 2021 - 6 pm

At these sessions we will provide you with important information on what you need to know before your child starts Kindergarten.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions.  Our goal is to make sure you have all that you need to make the best start possible for your child.

 

What are Getting to Know You Interviews?

To get to know you and your child even better, each family will have a scheduled interview to go through the completed enrolment form and discuss your child's transition to school.  This is also your opportunity to discuss any medical conditions, custody issues or other special circumstances before your child starts school.  We want to know as much information as we can so that we can cater for your child as best we can from the first day they are with us.  Interviews will be conducted over four days from 11 October to 14 October.  Further information will be communicated with families regarding their interview time via email closer to the time.

 

Will my child have an Orientation?

One of the most exciting things for us is meeting your child.  Your child will have the opportunity to visit our school for two orientation sessions in Term 4.  These sessions allow our students to become familiar with the school and our routines prior to their first day.  Our goal is to ensure the pathway from preschool to Kindergarten is as successful as possible.  We also supply you with an orientation pack and resources to help out - you are never in it alone and we are here to support you every step of the way.

First orientation - 11 or 12 November

Second orientation - 18 or 19 November
