Kindergarten hours

2018 KINDERGARTEN HANDBOOK

 

Kindergarten children attend every Tuesday and Thursday during Semester 1 and every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday in Semester 2.

Full day classes

Prior to the official commencement of teaching time, students are encouraged to play investigating the world around them and to work with their peers.

At 8:50am, a roll call and morning sharing occurs. Throughout the day your child may be involved in a number of learning activities to assist in developing the child as a whole. Activities include:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Social
  • Physical
  • Social aspects.

Your child is encouraged to attend activities that are appropriate for their age group. These may include all day excursions such as Athletics Carnivals and incursions. Parents will be informed of these activities.

At 10:40am, your child joins the rest of the school for recess.  Lunch is from 1:00pm to 1.40pm.

Assemblies

Two assemblies are held each term when Merit Awards are presented.  Parents are given prior warning in order to attend and be part of the presentation.

Bringing and picking up your child

Making sure your child is happy and safe is our priority. For this reason, parents, or a responsible person, are to bring their child to the junior room each day and be available to collect them at the end of the day. If you wish your child to be collected by a person other than their guardian, please advise the teacher. Written permission is required if an older sibling is collecting your child.
