We believe we have the most comprehensive kindergarten transition in the area. As soon as you express an interest in our school we will make contact with your child's kindergarten to ask for permission to come and observe her/him at kindergarten. We will also talk to the kindergarten teachers about the programs they run with your child and how it can fit with our programs at Powlett River Primary School.
In term four we invite all prospective prep students to join us for:
3 weeks for one hour per day
3 weeks for two hours per day and,
3 weeks for 3 hours per day.
Our research shows us that by getting to know the children even before they come to Powlett River Primary School allows to understand the context in which they come from and therefore, allows us to create individual learning paths from the very first day they start.
We have added a link to the school's handbook for you to peruse.
Every Thursday the school hosts a playgroup for preschool students in the area. It runs from 9.30 until 11.00 and includes students and parents having a shared morning tea. If possible we ask for a gold coin donation. It is a great way to get to know other mothers of young children in the community.
