Commencing Primary School is another significant event in a child’s life. It can be both exciting and emotional as your child starts another new chapter in their life. There are many advantages in attending the College’s Early Learning Centre. These include:
Throughout the year the children in the Early Learning Centre visit the College library each week to borrow books and are included in Book Week celebrations with the Primary Years students.
The College’s specialist Music teacher provides Music lessons each week as an introduction to concepts such as beat, rhythm, pitch, and exposure to a range of percussion instruments.
The children are also included in all College community events including the Mother’s Day Concert, Father’s Day breakfast, Grandparents Day celebration, and sporting events such as the Cross Country and the Athletics carnivals. These events help the children understand that they belong to a larger community while still being cared for in a smaller, nurturing environment.
Prior access to College facilities and interaction with staff and students relieves a lot of the anxiety normally associated with the transition to Kindergarten for both children and parents.
