Isis Town and Country - - News -

KYMM Cole and Barb Jenk­ins are the Prep teach­ers at Childers State School.

“We are look­ing for­ward to of­fer­ing fur­ther open days for Pre-Prep chil­dren in the near fu­ture,” Ms Cole said.

Ms Cole and Ms Jenk­ins be­lieve Prep is the most im­por­tant year of a child’s for­mal school­ing and are proud of the Prep pro­gram they de­liver.

At Childers State School the pro­gram is de­signed to cre­ate mo­ti­vated, suc­cess­ful learn­ers… learn­ers for life.

“Nat­u­rally for many fam­i­lies the tran­si­tion into Prep can be an anx­ious time,” Ms Jenk­ins said.

“The sole pur­pose of our open days is to help al­lay fears and un­cer­tainty for both par­ents and stu­dents,” Ms Cole said.

The dates for these days are Satur­day, Septem­ber 5, from 9–11am and then the fol­low­ing Mon­day, Septem­ber 7, and Thurs­day, Septem­ber 10, from 1.50–2.50pm.

“The days are be­ing or­gan­ised to give those fam­i­lies who were un­able to at­tend our first open days the op­por­tu­nity to visit our rooms,” Ms Jenk­ins said.

“It is also the per­fect time for a re­turn visit for those chil­dren who at­tended our first open days, or for par­ents who are still de­cid­ing to see first hand what we of­fer your chil­dren,” she said.

Par­ents of Pre-Prep chil­dren can phone the Childers State School of­fice on 4192 1333 to place their chil­dren on the visi­tors list. NEW IPAD: Master Kobey en­joys his first day at school.
