KINDERGARTEN 2024 PARENT EXPO

KINDISTART ORIENTATION SESSIONS

We would like your child to visit the school for 2 Kindistart sessions.  

2024 Session Dates

2 Sessions:  Tuesday 31 October and Tuesday 7 November - 9:15am to 10:45am

OR

Thursday 2 November and Thursday 9 November - 9:15am to 10:45am

Please meet in the school hall for all sessions.

For some children this will be their first contact with school while others, with older siblings, will find it a familiar environment. For all the children, this visit will mark the first time they are expected to be a "school child". We want it to be a happy experience and one where they develop positive feelings about their new school.

During their KindiStart visits your child will be encouraged to participate in some simple activities with other new Kindergarten children. Please try to prepare your child for these brief periods of separation. To help the children become independent we ask parents not to stay.

For the first few weeks Kindergarten children finish at 2:30pm. After this they will finish at the normal school time of 3:05pm.

TEA AND TEARS MORNING TEA
