Parkview Public School has welcomed 46 new smiling Kindergarten faces to it's school community in some of the hottest conditions imaginable in recent days. The students first day last Thursday was a wonderful success, with children entering their new educational environment with a minimum of fuss and quickly settling into routines.
The three classes of students were welcomed in the school hall before heading off to their new classrooms under the guidance of Miss Boardman, Miss Duncan and Miss Frazer, with eager parents and carers also sharing the first voyage to the classroom. Once there, children and parents engaged in a range of interactive activties before the students farewelled their parents and quickly immersed themselves in stories, fine motor based activties as well as art and craft.
The day was a real success according to Kindergarten teacher Jodie Boardman. "The children have settled very quickly. It reflects some well prepared children which is a credit to the parents and carers and a ringing endorsement of the extended transition program the students engaged in last year."
Children will this week engage in Best Start Assessments as part of their initial days of school and will soon look forward to the commencement of 'Discovery Learning' activities.
Parents and carers are encouraged to come into the school for the first Parent Information Session of the year on Tuesday, 11th February as well as the Term 1 Open Day which will be held on Thursday, 6th March.
