Gearing up to become a student
BIBOOHRA State School’s newest and youngest students have explored their new surrounds and been given a taste of life in the classroom ahead of their transition into prep next year.
The small school welcomed several kindy students and their families to the school on Friday for an open day.
To date 11 students have enrolled for prep at the school for 2018 and will be under the guidance of teacher Jan CoisTulloch and teacher aide Tracy Acha. As part of the prep open day the new students joined a class for some activities while parents attended a presentation about tranisitioning into school, delivered by Every Family co-ordinator Toni Iacutone from VPG.
Biboohra State School currently has 90 students enrolled, coming from Bilwon through to Mt Molloy.
Principal David King said the tight-knit school was looking forward to welcoming new students and families in the new year.
“You’re not just enrolling a child, you’re enrolling a fam- ily,” he said.
