Half of our brand new Preppies started school for the very first time on Monday, walking in with their ironed uniforms and oversized backpacks. Much of the day was spent showing them around their classrooms and outdoor area, introducing them to the new daily routine, and going through classroom etiquette with choruses of ‘whole body listening’ ringing out amongst the cohort.

There were a few yawns before they’d even reached morning tea, and some keen to kick off their shoes to get comfy. When one teacher asked if anyone had any questions, one student, in true Prep style, excitedly shot up their hand to announce ‘I’ve got new shoes!’.

Well done to Prep A and their parents for conquering the very first day of school!
