Pre-Kindy days and availability
A newsletter was sent out to all Pre-Kindy families earlier this week asking for your preferences for days of attendance at Pre-Kindy 2022.
We ask that you still state your preferred days on the form even if you have already done so verbally.
We make every effort to accommodate preferences, but it will depend upon availability.
Please note the following:
- Children must be three years old to attend Pre-Kindy; this is required by law.
- Pre-Kindy now operates with full days only, from 9 am to 3 pm.
- Children may attend a maximum of three days a week, subject to availability.
- While we allow for attendance up to three days a week, it may transpire that we offer your family fewer days, in order to give everyone a chance to participate.
- Children born before 1 July will be given preference for 2022, as children born after 1 July are able to participate in 2023 for the full year.

BOOK WEEK 2021
The countdown is on to Book Week 2021 with the theme this year being Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds. Book Week falls in week 6, with our famous parade being held on Friday 27th August. Children are encouraged to dress as their favourite book character using things that they already have at home. Classes are busily working on their art for the library which will be judged by our very own Sr Eileen, with prizes being awarded at the Parade assembly. Have a wonderful long weekend!
