Kindergarten team updates

From the Team Leader

Dear Families,

Welcome to Kindergarten. Beginning Kindergarten is an exciting time for children and while many are familiar with Turner School from preschool, moving into the ‘big school’ is a significant change for them.  They have adjusted wonderfully to their new classes and are learning kindergarten routines.

We have four classes in kindergarten and they are named after Australian Native fauna. The classes are the Lily Pillys; Sundews, Kangaroo Paws and Royal Bluebells.

The teaching team consists of:

  • Katrina Harding and Tegan Meredith (LSA) (SKKH)
  • Imogen Johnson (KIJ)
  • Chelsea McKenzie (KCM)
  • Sandra Shepley (KSS)

It is important to us that the students at Turner School feel comfortable in the school environment. Building friendship is an important part of this and as such, social and emotional learning is a major focus in the kindergarten classes this term.  We will talk a lot over the term about what makes a good friend and how to share our thoughts and feelings respectfully.  We will also use class discussion times to problem solve common friendship issues.

If you have any questions about the Kindergarten program or your child’s progress please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or myself.

Kind Regards

Lu Weckert
