Prep Overview

 

Our modern day Prep Classrooms, combined with dedicated and talented teachers and teacher aides, provide a great start for your child`s school life. Their day includes a full developmental program which is derived from the P - 3 curriculum and the Early Years Curriculum Guidelines. Benchmarks in Literacy and Numeracy have been set for our Prep children to aspire to by the end of their prep year (for example PM level 4 for reading). Children attend for the whole day which commences at 8:50am and finishes at 2:45pm.

Under 8's Day - 25 May 9.00-11.00am

At this annual event, many community services will be in attendance, as well as a variety of planned art stalls/ activities run by classes, and more sporting codes will be represented than ever before. All the stalls and activities for the children will be free yet again. Tea, coffee and muffins will be available for adults at the front of the hall and these will items will require payment. A variety of new books will also be available on the day as part of the Scholastic Book Fair that the school is conducting for the entire week. Book prices will vary depending upon the book chosen, so bring along some money if you wish to buy some great children’s books. Activities will be spread out on the two school ovals and take place around and in the hall. Stalls which are run by the teachers range from hot popcorn, a disco in the hall, a gross motor obstacle course, making necklaces, kite making, bubble blowing and decorating cupcakes, just to name a few.
The emergency services which will be attending the event include the Queensland Fire and Rescue, Rural Fire Brigade, Queensland Ambulance and Police Service and the SES. Children will be able to look through the vehicles and handle some of the equipment that these organisations use from day to day. AFL, Rugby League, Football/Soccer, Cricket, Rugby Union and Surf Life Saving are some of the sporting codes that will be represented this year. Different inflatable equipment/areas will be brought in by several sports this year as well.  Noosa Coast Guard will be attending again this year along with the Wilvos which is a dedicated group of South East Queensland people who devote their time to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of precious Australian native wildlife. Many services and organisations in attendance also have giveaways for the children. Queensland Zoo will be bringing in several reptiles including snakes, lizards, alligators and possibly some mammals as well to educate the children about wildlife. Children will be able to have a close look at these animals, pat them and have photos with them if they wish.

All Prep classrooms have an Interactive White Board; in fact all classrooms in all year levels have Interactive White Boards as well as four computers. This is complimented with computer labs, a well equipped library and other electronic resource materials.

Our academic endeavours are supported by a caring learning environment, where children feel safe and respected.

Those three words in bold outline our entire philosophy for our 'School Wide Positive Behaviour Model'. We believe behaviour needs to be taught and nurtured with the rights of all firmly drawn in the sand. Everyone has the right to be safe, to learn and to be respected.

Specialist teachers in physical education, music and library provide grounding in these skills on a regular basis.

Our welcoming environment enables parents and support groups to interact in the school community. The most famous of these is our 'grandparenting' program. Parents have regular access to classrooms and teachers and as a result, have a healthy partnership in their child's education.

Feel free to use our online ready reckoner to see when your child can start Prep.
