KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION for SEPTEMBER 2017

is Monday, February 20th to Friday, February 24th, 2017

 

Dear Parents of Children Entering Kindergarten:

Your child is on a wonderful journey.

Your child is unique. No other child in the world said the same first word at the same moment as yours.  No other child learned to walk in exactly the same way or at exactly the same time. No other child has had identical experiences, thoughts, interests or ideas. You know your child's strengths and needs better than anyone.

As parents, you have firsthand knowledge of how your child learns. You have observed your child's constant, active attempts to make sense of the world. As your child’s first teacher, you have helped your child to learn in many ways.

We are confident that your child's schooling experience will continue the learning process started at birth and supported by you for the past few years. We are excited to assist each child to continue to develop in many ways throughout his or her school experiences.

By combining your knowledge and ours, we can assist your child to become a self confident, lifelong learner.  Please call your child’s principal at any time if you have any questions about your child’s education.

Welcome to school on the Sunshine Coast!

Sincerely,

 

 

Patrick Bocking, Superintendent of Schools
