Pre-school Information meeting for Parents

Once a term we have a pre-school information meeting for parents of children starting later that term or early the following term. The meeting is held at Weld Street on a Wednesday from 9.30am – 12.30pm. Parents will receive an invitation to attend this meeting with their child.

Pre-school visits

Following the pre-school information morning, children have two further visits to school before they start. Children do not need to be in school uniform for pre-school visits. Pre-school visits days are:

  • Wednesday 9.00 am – 12.30 pm (child will need to bring morning tea)
  • Friday 11.00 am – 1.30 pm (child will need to bring lunch)
