The Preps are off to a great start to the year. They have started learning this terms values of Getting Along which has included discussing taking turns and making good choices. The students decided they need to take turns because when we take turns we are sharing, being kind and making friends. Making good choices is also a major focus in the classroom as we encourage the students to think about their behavoiur to ensure we are all in a happy and safe in our learning environment.
As part of getting to know each other the students discussed the things that they like. These included playing in the playground, playing with friends and playing on the equipment.
We are looking forward to a happy first term together, getting along, making good choices and learning lots of new things.
Welcome to Prep Gannan! It is so lovely to have everyone back at school. We are enjoying the excitment and enthusiasm of the new Preps as they begin school.
