Preparing for Prep at St Paul the Apostle School
We welcome all our new families and existing families to this page as we get ready to meet our new Preps for 2021! We are so excited to bring you this online space, a place where you can meet the Prep teachers and explore the school via the virtual tour. You will also find important information on the web page and be updated with upcoming events and dates as well.
Meeting the Prep Teachers
We understand how difficult this year has been for many families and children and we are sad that our normal Prep orientation program has had to be altered due to the pandemic. However, we have prepared some videos for you to view in your own time so you can meet the teachers and begin to make a connection to the school and community. These videos can be regarded as virtual orientation sessions.
We are looking forward to holding an onsite orientation session very soon. Details will be provided as soon as we receive updated directives from the Catholic Education Office Melbourne.
Please check emails and this website for information.
We would love to receive photos and videos of your children participating in the virtual orientation sessions and completing the art and craft activities. Please email the teachers using the provided email address.
We look forward to meeting each and every one of our 2021 Preps in person very soon!
From all the SPA Prep Teachers.
Getting Ready - Showbags
The ‘show bags’ are personalised and include lots of important information as well as a lovely surprise for your child! In addition, we have provided your child with some resources to help prepare them for school, such as number and alphabet charts. A whiteboard marker has been included for hours of tracing practice and a tub of play doh to help develop fine motor skills.
