17 new students enrolled at Stanmore PS this week and joined the many other Stanmore students returning from Christmas holidays. Most new children are in Year 3 but there are new children in all other grades. In addition, 98 new Kindergarten students will begin school next Monday. Most of the new Year 3 students have transferred to Stanmore PS from the small infants schools at Taverners Hill and Australia Street. These students are experiencing their first days in a bigger school.
Our new students are very excited about starting at a new school, although some confessed to feeling a little nervous. They have all been buddied up with existing students from the school, whose role is to be friendly and supportive and to help them settle in well at their new school.
Please help us to make all new staff and students feel welcome at their new school.
