What a fabulous start to the week! It was Kindergarten's official start to 'big school' on Monday, with their special, one-off starting time of 9:30 am. This gave the paparazzi (parents/carers, relatives and friends) plenty of time to take photos of the 52 super-cute kindies in their brand new uniforms! Some of our paparazzi traveled afar, just to be part of this special moment (a huge SHOUT OUT to the Grandma, who came all the way from South Australia for today!)
The only tears we saw were the ones coming down from the skies (as well as a couple of parents), as the kindies happily joined the line, turned and waved, then walked up the stairs with their teachers into the kindy classrooms.
To help console the grown-ups, as well as to get out of the rain, our amazing P&C put on a 'Cuppa & a Chat' straight after drop-off. It was a chance to meet some of the other parents and get to know each other a little better.
By the time the grown-ups went off into the big wide world, there were lots of smiles...they even remembered to come and pick their children up at 3:00pm!
Thanks to our 3 fabulous Kindergarten teachers - Mrs Goodridge, Ms Karstrom and Ms Jennett - who expertly made our youngest students' first day, such a memorable one! Huge thanks to parent Melissa S, who organised the morning tea, along with the support of some other parents - you made our Kindy families feel so welcome!
