Everything on hand for kids
GAYNDAH State School prep students have access to up-to-date technology and resources and professional and caring staff.
Children are eligible to access the prep program at school if they are turning five years of age before June 30 that year.
The prep curriculum is play-based and, since the beginning of 2012, has incorporated the National Curriculum.
The preparatory year is often the first experience of formal education for most children.
At Gayndah State School they participate in an oral language program as well as being immersed in literacy, numeracy and science.
These key learning areas occur within the five contexts of learning in prep – focused and explicit teaching and learning, play, real-life situations, investigations and routines and transitions.
The history curriculum for prep students was introduced this year and students enjoy a variety of “hands-on” activities to develop fine and gross motor skills.
Outdoor and indoor play encourages social interactions as well as the development of active learning processes including role play and imaginative play.
Students are able to access the Interactive White Board and iPads and are encouraged to set goals each term related to their learning and personal ambitions.
HAPPY PREPPIES: Gayndah State School Kindy has a colourful learning environment.
