That’s a wrap on the first week of kindergarten at Our Lady of Good Counsel Kindergarten.
Brand new kindergarten teacher and Gatton local, Miss Donna Marriott said there was lots of excitement and a few tears as the children formed new friendships, explored new surrounds and familiarised themselves with kindergarten routines.
“The first day of kindergarten can be overwhelming for children and parents but we focus on making them feel comfortable in their new environment and helping them adapt to the routines as quickly as possible,” Donna said.
“Our program operates on a five day fortnight so the children only spent two days at kindergarten in their first week, but we can already see some great friendships developing. By the end of day two the children were starting to explore our play spaces independently and particularly loved working together on construction.”
