This week has been very exciting for the children who are starting 'big' school next year at Old Bar PS. Our kinder 'buddies' have been visiting the pre-schools and enjoying some special time getting to know our newest students on familiar territory.
Next week (the week beginning 22nd October) the pre-schoolers will visit Old Bar School in a small group with their pre-school friends and staff members from the pre-school. They will again meet up with their buddies and be taken on a walk around the school.
For the next three successive weeks the pre-school children will visit Kinder classrooms for activities with the Kindergarten teachers, Mrs Symonds, Mrs Miller and Ms Shoesmith. This will occur on one of the days the children normally attend pre-school and they will be brought to School by pre-school staff and stay for approx. 2 hours. They will have morning tea with their buddies and participate in different activities with a different teacher each week.
Our extensive transition program ensures a happy, confident start to kindergarten - just what parents and teachers want for our students. The 'buddies' have been well trained by Mrs Symonds and are taking their responsibilites very seriously!
