Getting Ready for Big School

Kindergarten parent information

Principal Sue Roach presents a virtual information session for parents of students starting kindergarten. 

Is my child ready for school?

This is a frequently asked question by parents in the year leading up to kindergarten. The Is My Child Ready for School? document contains information which may be useful in parent considerations.

Supporting your child's transition to school

Helpful information for supporting your child's transition to school is provided by our school counsellor Elizabeth Stevanoni in the Kindergarten transition document.

Daisy's First Day

The department has produced a special picture book for parents and carers to support their child's transition to primary school. Follow Daisy the koala as she embarks on her exciting first day.

Watch the animated version of Daisy's First Day or download the picture book to enjoy reading.

After reading the book, try Daisy's First Day-themed fun activities such as colouring sheets and jigsaw puzzle.

Anticipated costs for Kindergarten

To assist parents and carers prepare for the new school year, a list of the anticipated costs for Semester 1, and also a suggested shopping list of equipment that your child will need to bring to school is prepared at the end of each year. A copy of these lists will be available at the end of Term 4.
