Parents are welcome to stay for the first 15 minutes followed by a morning tea for parents to get acquainted – a great opportunity to organise play dates for any children new to the area. Children take part in play-based activities designed to give children the opportunity to get to know one another.

Drop in and go. Parents can return at the end of the session or visit the store for a coffee while they wait. Children take part in different activities to help build their relationships and make them more comfortable in the classroom setting.

Drop and go. Following their activity session, there will be a BBQ and children meet their Grade 6 Buddy for next year (parents get to meet them too) - always a special occasion for the children, old and young!
MEET THE TEACHER SESSION

Meet the teacher session will be an opportunity for the children to meet their teacher and classmates for 2019. Children will participate in some getting to know you activities which will allow them to have a few familiar faces for their first day of school.
Prep 2019 timetable
First Day of school is Wednesday 30th January.
Preps will attend from 9.30-1.00pm.
Regular school times apply for all other grades (9am-3.20pm).
The Prep children will attend for a full day on Monday 4th February.
For the first 3 Thursdays and Fridays there will be no school for the Prep students. This allows them to adjust to school life and provides teachers the opportunity to conduct a one hour interview and assessment with each child.

Our preps share some of their thoughts on school so far...
Welcome to Kangaroo Ground Primary School, a school where the students’ individuality is recognised and valued. ‘KG’ is characterised by our wonderful staff and students. You will find all our teachers to be caring, friendly and committed. We work together in a friendly, respectful and productive learning environment. We are proudly supported by committed parents and families.
We offer a wide range of specialist and extra-curricular programs which cater for a broad range of student interests and needs. Kangaroo Ground Primary offers a caring, inclusive and supportive learning environment for our students in a multi-age structure. We strive for and achieve excellence in teaching and learning and encourage our students to become active, life-long learners.
Our school is also characterised by our ‘family feel’, something we value highly and promote in every aspect of our school’s operation. At Kangaroo Ground Primary School we encourage parent participation and welcome parent assistance in our classrooms and school programs. Parent involvement is encouraged as it adds to the children’s perception that their learning a shared enterprise.
I encourage you to explore our website and learn more about the broad range of educational experiences we offer at Kangaroo Ground Primary.
The best way to get a feel for how our school operates is to see it in action on an ordinary school day. If you have any further queries or questions I am happy to arrange a personal tour to answer them and show you our children in their classes.
Tours can be arranged by calling the school on 9712 0292. I look forward to meeting with any interested parents.
