Kinder Orientation Mornings

As an initial step in introducing your child to our school, we ask you to bring them along to our "Kindergarten Orientation Mornings" held during Term 4. During these visits they will be able to visit the Kindergarten classrooms and library. They will also participate in a variety of activities. The Principal takes the opportunity to meet with you and other parents to talk about the transition of your child to school and answer any questions you may have. We look forward to meeting you and hope you will very quickly feel part of our school community. Our "Kindergarten Orientation Mornings" are an opportunity for your child to spend some time at school and get to know other children who will be in Kindergarten at Cherrybrook Public School. For dates, contact our school on: 9481 8575 for details.
