The Kindergarten Orientation Program allows children enrolled to start school at Stanmore Public School in 2021 to become familiar with the classroom and playground environments, and helps them develop relationships with peers and teachers.
Our teachers are greatly looking forward to meeting our new students and welcoming them into our school community. We are very pleased that the COVID-19 restrictions for schools have been eased this term, to enable this important program to take place.
