Once your child is enrolled with us, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to connect with us as you move towards ‘big school’ life.
We will hold events such as:
- The Kindergarten Play Date: an afternoon play date in Term 4 2023. This time is an opportunity for enrolled families to meet some of our staff and current Kindergarten families while enjoying our school grounds. Details will be sent directly to families closer to the date.
- The Kindergarten Orientation program: a program spanning two mornings in Term 4 2023. Parents are invited to presentations from staff about our school and how to get the most out of the first year of school, while children connect with our teaching staff and get a snapshot of school life. Details will be sent directly to families closer to the date.
- The Kindergarten Workshop Series: these parent sessions will be run in Term 1 2024. These workshops are presented by school staff with the aim of equipping, informing and connecting with families as they support our learners in Kindergarten and beyond. Details will be sent directly to families closer to the date.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family to Gordon East PS.
