Prep Dates
Families will be notified of any changes to the following:

 

Preps for 2022 will commence school on Thursday 3rd February 2022.
 

We will be having SET TIMES for prep students to arrive on Thursday morning, to allow for an easier transition for each child, as follows:
• Student’s last names starting with A- G, are asked to start at 9.20am
• Student’s last names starting with H- N are asked to start at 9.40am
• Student’s last names starting with O- Z are asked to start at 10.00am

 

Please adhere to the above timetable to enable this transition to work effectively.
 

Please Note: School will finish at 3.30pm each day. To collect your child at the end of the day, please wait outside your child’s classroom. The teacher will permit students to leave once their parent/guardian has been sighted. Every other school day starts at 9am. Students will have the first five Wednesdays off, the last one being Wednesday the 2nd of March. The Wednesdays when Preps do not attend will be used for parent meetings and initial assessments for students.

As of the week starting the 7th of March, Preps will be full time.
