Kindergarten Orientation - 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

Wyrallah Road Public School would like to invite parents and children starting Kindergarten in 2020, to our Kindergarten Orientation Program. Our orientation days will occur over four consecutive Tuesdays beginning on Tuesday, 12 November through to Tuesday, 3 December. This program aims to facilitate a smooth, successful and positive transition for children and their families from preschool to school. These days include a number of planned experiences where children meet the teachers and students at our school and begin to learn our school routines. They become familiar with the location of play areas and eating areas, junior toilets, assembly areas, canteen, library and our music room. Children will be participating in pre-kinder literacy and numeracy activities as well as other fun experiences aimed to build relationships with teachers and friendships with other children. The program offers important information for parents, highlights some of the many programs our school has to offer and provides an opportunity for parents to question and establish shared understandings.

Kindergarten Orientation consists of four Tuesdays, beginning at 9.30am and finishing at 2.00pm. There will be an information session and morning tea for parents on Tuesday, 12 November in the school hall. An overview of the program is on the back of this page.

On each Orientation day students will need:

•        Comfortable and appropriate clothing with covered footwear (not school uniform for the orientation days)

•        School bag

•        Hat (preferably broad brimmed)

•        Drink bottle

•        All belongings will need to be clearly labelled with your child’s name

•        Lunch consisting of a piece of fruit for fruit break, snacks for recess and a sandwich for lunch. We encourage a nut free environment.

Students will be collected each day from the car park area at 2pm near the school hall. There will be a Kinder surprise performance for parents on the last Orientation day (Tuesday, 3 December) in the school hall at 1:30pm.

Students will be taking home a special learning kit on the last day, full of useful activities to complete before starting school next year.

We look forward to meeting all children and their parents/carers during these exciting and informative days.
