Ready Set Kinder

All students entering Kindergarten at Hay Public School in 2024 are invited to participate in our ‘Ready, Set, Kinder!' transition program each Wednesday in Terms 3 and 4 to undertake learning and familiarisation activities and to experience aspects of school life.  This is an opportunity for them to explore and play in a new learning environment and will assist in helping them feel happy, safe and secure when starting school in 2024.

Details of the transition program are:

  • Whole day transition sessions each Wednesday beginning in Education Week (Week 3). Each day starts at 9:15 am and finishes at 3:00 pm.

  • Parents are asked to drop off their child at the Kindergarten room between 9:00 and 9:15 am.

  • All children need to be picked up by a parent or carer at 3:00 pm.

  • Bus children – please see the office staff to arrange for forms to be filled in so that your child can catch the school bus to and from school.
