STARTING SCHOOL

On the first day of school, please report to the school office and you will be escorted to your child's classroom. Arrival at approximately 8.45am is ideal so the child has time to greet the teacher, meet some children and get items from their schoolbag before the bell rings at 8.55am. Parents are welcome to stay for a short time if they wish.

Children can start attending school on  their 5th birthday or the first school day after their fifth  birthday. However we encourage enrolment prior to starting.  You and your child will be invited to attend  a pre-entry morning approximately 3-4 weeks prior to your child’s  birthday.  After the initial visit your  child  may  enjoy   another  3-4  mornings   before  they  begin school.  During each visit your child will be  involved in regular classroom activities.   On starting day, he/she will be familiar and comfortable with their new  environment and off to a great start. New entrant stationery is pre-packaged and  available at the school office.  New  entrants will also require a chair bag which may be either home-made (pattern  available) or purchased from the school office.
