Occasionally throughout the year we may have a visiting guest, musician or performer visit, sometimes these will incur a cost and other times will be included in our budget. We also have other special events for Mother’s and Father’s day, discos, and small fun events. At Christmas time the children put on a Christmas Carol Concert here in the pre-school grounds. You will notice your child practising carols in the last term, and we encourage all families to join in the fun and support your child at this exciting time of year. A note will be sent home with details.
We would love to help celebrate your child’s birthday at Pre-School. You might like to send along a cake or even bring along a cake and candles for morning tea and join your child and classmates for the celebration. Even if your child’s birthday doesn’t fall on a Pre-School day you are more than welcome to celebrate it on the next Pre-School day.
(Some parents find that sending along cupcakes for birthdays a better alternative to a larger, hard to handle birthday cake.)
We acknowledge religious and cultural celebrations as a part of our ongoing, everyday program. Please indicate on your enrolment form if there are any.
We really enjoy going on excursions. A note will always be sent home letting you know about upcoming excursions. Parents will need to give written permission for their child to attend upcoming excursions. We always require parent volunteers to accompany any group on our excursions, so please let the staff know if you can help.
Each year in the third term the Pre-School holds a PHOTO DAY. This is a pupil free day. Individual and class photos are taken by a professional school photographer. You will be notified, of photo times and general procedure prior to the day.
