Term Dates

Kindergarten - A staggered start has been arranged to aid transition from home to school for our Kindergarten students. This will also assist teachers to get to know each student in the first few days of school. Kindergarten students are divided into two groups A&B. Each group is rostered to attend school at different times in Week 1. In Week 2, all students will attend for half a day and will build this up to a full day by the end of Week 2. Full time attendance commences from Week 3 for all students.
