Dear Parents, Guardians and Carers of Grade 5/6 students,
We would like to invite children whose parents/carers are considering enrolling them at Kyneton High School to attend our Pre-Orientation Day. This year, it will be held on Friday, 3 June. The purpose of the day is to give students an opportunity to learn about the Kyneton High School environment and programs to assist in the transition from primary to secondary school.
As your child’s primary school is not one of our designated ‘feeder schools’, either because it lies outside our updated government school ‘zone’, or because it is a non-government school, if you would like your child to attend, please either:
· Contact the school on 5421 1100 or Kyneton.email@example.com OR
· Fill in the Sign Up form: https://forms.gle/Nveiw5Pe64JSQm5s7
Please note that children will need to be dropped off at 9am and picked up from the school at 3pm by a nominated adult.
Once you have signed up, you will be sent further details and a permission form directly from Kyneton HS.
KYNETON HIGH SCHOOL FAMILY INFORMATION SESSIONS
A child’s journey from being a primary school student to a high school student can be an exciting but overwhelming one – both for the child and their family! As in any major life change, knowing more about what to expect in the next stage can leave us feeling more comfortable about the process.
