2021 Start Up Arrangements

2021 Start Up Arrangements

School starts for Lyneham Preschool Group A and all Kindergarten students on Monday 1st February and for Years 1-6 Tuesday 2nd February.  Lyneham Preschool Group B and Downer Preschool Group start on Wednesday 3rd February.   Families will have received information about which half of the day their child starts in their orientation packs. 

Kindergarten students will start their day in the Kindergarten courtyard, enjoying the outdoor learning environment, instead of coming through the front entrance.  Please enter through the blue courtyard gate; located on Brigalow Street.  

On Friday 29th January class lists will be on display in the front courtyard to the left of the main entrance from 10am-12pm.  Please enter and exit via black courtyard gates. Stationery you have ordered will be delivered to your children in the first week of school.  The school uniform shop run by our P&C will be open at this time.

Students in years 1-6 start on Tuesday 2nd February.  

On Tuesday 2nd February students in years 1 and 2 will meet in the junior playground at 9am. 

Students in years 3-6 will meet in the senior playground at 9am.

We will allocate children with their teachers and then students will go into their new classroom.  Students will be in classes from Day 1, with rotations in year levels in the afternoons of the first week.  This will enable students to know their own class and teacher, establishing routines, as well as building relationships across the year level and with other teachers. 

Entry will continue to be via the black gates as per last year's arrangements.  This has been welcomed by many students and families, as it has alleviated congestion at the front of the school.
