Prep/Foundation

Our Foundation children are given the best possible start to school life by being introduced to the rituals and joys of formal learning through a rich assortment of opportunities and experiences. The Prep literacy program focuses on developing skills in listening, speaking, writing and reading while discovering print and its variety of uses. The numeracy program provides active participation in practical experiences to count, sort, classify, group, measure, weigh, add and solve problems.

In Foundation we have a regularly updated blog sharing what we get up to each term. Please click here to access the site.

Testimonials

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.
