Giving indigenous kids a great start
A KINDERGARTEN for threeyear-old Aboriginal children will open at Tranby Primary School in Rivervale under an expanded early intervention plan by the State Government.
KindiLink will start next year at 37 schools. It will provide twohour play and learn sessions three times a week for children and their parents.
It will be established in 27 schools with existing Aboriginal kindergartens (for four-year-old children) and 10 other schools with a large proportion of Aboriginal students, like Tranby Primary School.
Belmont MLA Glenys Godfrey said Tranby Primary was a great school with fabulous teachers and staff.
“I am glad they are getting
d440089 extra resources to focus on early intervention for Aboriginal children. I believe this will make a big difference in their future educational outcomes,” she said.
