Families Starting School

We have Open Days throughout the year for prospective families to come and see our wonderful school. At our Open Days, we hold a formal presentation in the school library and then conduct a tour of our school. This is a great opportunity to ask questions with our Prep teachers and school leaders in a friendly forum. Please contact the school to find out more about these days.

Open Days 

 Sunday 24th June, 2018


Location: School Library

Families Starting School Program is part of our transition program from pre-school to school. This program allows pre-school students to enter the classroom and experience the life of a Prep student. We find this helps tremendously with students’ confidence in starting school and eases any anxiety for students (and parents)!

Everyone is welcome to our ‘Families Starting School’ Program:

Monday 30th July-Friday 3rd August, 2018

*To cater for varying Kindergarten timetables, we are repeating sessions on different days. It would be ideal to attend three different sessions if possible.

Literacy Sessions: Monday 30th July or Thursday 2nd August (9:00am-10:30am)

Numeracy Sessions: Tuesday 31st July or Friday 3rd August (9:00am-10:30am)
