BACK TO SCHOOL AS EASY AS ABC!

BACK TO SCHOOL AS EASY AS ABC!

Children from across the region returned to school recently, beginning a whole new year of learning and fun! 

The start of the school year can be a big adjustment and the overwhelm that comes with it is real, for parents and for their children. Education Minister Grace Grace said whether children were transitioning from kindy to Prep; from primary to secondary school; or progressing to the next year level, parents and carers could help their child manage the start of school with confidence. “The start of the new school year is an exciting time for children, and we want them to feel welcome, safe and confident, and to develop a lifelong love of learning,” Ms Grace said. 

There are many ways parents and caregivers can help their children to adjust to school. These include packing a little note in their lunch box, filling their hands with virtual kisses before they leave or place a picture of you and them together in their backpack.
