Transition

For children who are leaving our school, it is a really good idea to start positively talking to your child about their school next year. Perhaps go to the school for a visit and look at the play areas and classrooms. Ensure you are enrolled now and have that school’s uniform and booklist ready for day 1. This will really help your child feel part of the school from the beginning. If you are concerned about how your child might settle, please contact your teacher or admin so we can talk about opportunities to help with the transition process.

Booklists Due

Don’t forget, if you would like to order your booklist through Ziggies and the school they are due back to the school by November 30th. Online orders that you can pick up at the school are due December 4th. Orders after this will need to be home delivery. Of course you can pick up the items on the list at a retailer of your choice.
