We have now met and welcomed three quarters of our 2022 Prep Class with the third
of our four Prep Orientation sessions held on Tuesday. Our thanks to the Prep team
for facilitating such a supportive and welcoming process. This orientation process
has allowed a more personalised and supportive orientation to our school. We look
forward to greeting our fourth and final group next Tuesday. 2022 Prep parents will
join us for a Parent Information session on 25 November, thank you to the P&F for
providing refreshments for this event.
During our orientation sessions, each 2022 Prep student receives a special pack, containing:
A St Peter’s calico library bag
An alphabet desk plate, to encourage letter knowledge and name writing
‘Good Night, Sleep Tight’- a picture book used extensively in the first weeks of Prep
when learning about rhyme and other concepts of phonological awareness.
Information about St Peter’s including fee schedule, OSHC and Parent Code of
2022 book list
High frequency words
At the conclusion of the morning, our new Preppies also receive a special certificate
that welcomes them to our St Peter’s Community.
Upon confirmation of enrolment this year, 2022 Prep families received an important
booklet detailing information relevant to a successful start to schooling. It outlines
tips for the first day of school, successful transitions, lunchbox recommendations and
skills that are necessary for a child beginning Prep. More information about what we are learning in Prep over the year can be found
here. I encourage you to take a look, as these will be skills that Prep children learn
during their first year of school. Information for parents. The Australian Curriculum –

on Thursday 25 November, where Prep families will learn the class that their child will
be in and meet their 2022 teacher. This will be a great opportunity to say a big
‘Welcome’ to our 2022 Prep community. Families will also get to visit their child’s
classroom and hear about how to best support a successful transition to ‘Big School’
next year.If you know of any families who are hoping to join our community with a Prep student
in 2022, please encourage them to enrol online at our school website or contact the
