General Information

School terms

We follow Government school terms, but a fun and stimulating holiday care program is provided at NO extra charge.

School is closed on public holidays and “school holidays” i.e if a public holiday falls on a Tuesday or a Thursday the school is closed on the Monday and/or Friday.

Your child will receive a detailed report at the end of each term, as well as their workbook and art folder for you to see what they have achieved within that term.

School Holidays

We do not close for school holidays, excepting in December when school will be closed, normally around the 10th of December to the 12th of January.

When school holidays do occur, we take a break from our daily routine of teaching and doing a theme, and we do fun activities, some of these activities include the following and parents may be required to pay for their children to participate;

~The travelling zoo

~ Pony rides

~Jumping castle

~Slip and slide fun

Communication

Newsletters will be e-mailed regularly as a method of on-going communication with parents.

Each child is provided with a message book, parents can look forward to daily communication from the teachers informing you of your child’s specific progress, as well as what the theme will be for the week and if there are any areas to concentrate on, or what areas your child is excelling in.

This is a wonderful way to communicate with you. This “talk book” helps to facilitate open communication between teachers and families. We encourage families to be active in their child’s education.
