PREP ORIENTATION DAY
Due to Stage 3 Restrictions in place across the Metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shires, our team needed to make sure our families were safe but could still connect for the very important Prep Orientation Day for the Class of Prep 2021 at Officer and Narre Warren South.
Instead of an on-campus event, we decided to offer our Preps and their families the opportunity to visit the classroom online. Mrs van Dyk had a video of the Prep classroom, showing all guests through the learning spaces and outdoors. Mrs Nuske (Assistant to Deputy Principal) and Mrs Jackie Saluni (Enrolments) also joined us for the meeting. Our new Prep friends bought their favourite toy for Show and Tell, and Mrs van Dyk read her favourite story. Campus Principal, Mr Sonny Aiono also joined the meeting to say hello to all our incoming Prep students for next year and share his show and tell, the Staff v Students Sporting Trophy from this year.
After Orientation Day, each of our guests received an email with a link to the video that they could watch through again with their (soon to be) ‘big school’ child. Our next Orientation Day is planned for September, so we will have more information closer to the date as to whether that will be an on-campus or virtual event.
