Prep

2018 Enrolments are open now, Click here ​


Prep provides the foundation for your child's success at school by developing:

  • a positive approach to learning
  • independence and confidence
  • thinking and problem-solving skills
  • language skills
  • early literacy and numeracy
  • physical abilities, including gross and fine motor skills

Your child must be five by 30 June in the year they start prep (use Education Qld's ready reckoner). Prep is five days a week and children stay all day. Prep is integrated fully into the rest of the school, and classrooms and other facilities are located in school grounds.

We provide prep families with an additional handbook that outlines details specific to prep.

We use the Australian Curriculum and the Early Years Curriculum Guidelines, to plan appropriate learning experiences using investigations and play based activities.

In 2015 all Queensland schools began to introduce the updated Australian Curriculum into our schools. The seven areas covered are English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, The Arts, Technologies and Health and Physical Education. Prep teachers also use the Early Years Curriculum Guidelines to plan appropriate learning experiences using investigations and play-based activities.

Your prep child will also participate in lessons delivered by our specialist teachers:

  • Health and physical education/sport (30 minutes)

  • Music or Dance (30 minutes)                                                                       

  • Library (30 minutes)

Parents have an important and valued role in the education of their children and in our learning community. Therefore, we welcome your involvement in the classroom. We encourage you to be part of their learning in whatever way you can. Please let your child’s teacher know at the beginning of the year if you have any special talents you can share! (for example: art, music, cooking, science etc.) When attending your child’s classroom as a volunteer please sign in and out of the visitor’s register in the administration office.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
