Due to the current health situation, the timings of our Kindergarten enrolment and orientation program for 2021 are somewhat different to normal. We are still taking applications for Kindergarten 2021 and all steps in our enrolment process are being offered online. Following completion of the online application form, an enrolment interview with our Head of Junior School, Mr William Wallace, is now being conducted virtually via 'zoom'.
Our ‘Getting to know you sessions’ which are normally held in May will take place at a later date to allow us extra time to complete the enrolment interview process. These are a wonderful opportunity for our prospective Kindy Crew students to visit the school and interact with our friendly teachers and other students who have applied for a place. Our “Getting to Know you Sessions” are small sessions of about 10 children for approximately one hour with our Kindergarten Teachers, School Counsellor and our Learning Support Team. These sessions give our teaching staff the opportunity to get to know the children who have applied for Kindergarten at Lakes Grammar.
Unfortunately, we will need to look at postponing these sessions until restrictions are lifted and it is safe to go ahead with them. This may mean rescheduling them to later in Term 2 or possibly even Term 3. If restrictions however continue into Term 3 we may look at combining these sessions with our Kindergarten Orientation program in Term 4.
Our Kindergarten Orientation Program is usually held in October and we would be hopeful that this will be able to take place in its usual format by then.
