Welcome to One White

The excitement begins this week as the Year 1s become much more independent as they move up in the school.
On the first day, please walk your child to our classroom with their booklist items from 8:15am (please bring ALL school supplies on the first day). Place their booklist items INSIDE your child’s tidy tray. Students can then unpack their own drink bottles and put their bags on the bag rack outside (Prep side) our classroom and start their colouring in.  When the bell goes, parents are required to leave. If your child is settled beforehand, say a quick goodbye and leave promptly. Please ensure that morning goodbyes are kept short and sweet to enable your child to transition into a successful day. If they are upset for any reason, I will ensure your child is fully supported as they become comfortable with their new peers and surroundings. Don’t forget to remind them of who will be picking them up in the afternoon and where.

From the second day onward, students will be required to line-up behind the 1W marking on the ground in the Undercover Area. Please make sure you have said your goodbyes before your child is seated. After a whole school prayer, we will be sent to classrooms in our lines.

PARENTS/GUARDIANS ARE NOT PERMITTED TO WALK THEIR CHILD TO THE CLASSROOM UNLESS THEY SIGN IN AT THE OFFICE FIRST.

If your child is experiencing difficulties saying goodbye, either myself or an administration representative will walk them to the classroom and settle them. This is an important transitional strategy so that your child does not expect you to walk them to the room each day. Additionally, I believe that it is vitally important for Year 1 children to carry their own bags and belongings to the classroom so that they learn the valuable skill of independence.

The children will also be unpacking their own bags each morning and continuing to pack their bags each afternoon to ensure the skill of independence is being practiced.

MONDAY

TUESDAY

Students are dismissed from the classroom at 2:55pm. Please make sure your child knows where you are picking them up.

THURSDAY
Students line up in the undercover area (no later than 8:33am).
SNACK ATTACK TODAY!
Students are dismissed from the classroom at 2:55pm. Please make sure your child knows where you are picking them up.
