Information Session: Getting ready for prep

We are hosting an information evening for families on Wednesday 26 July from 7pm to 8pm about how 3 and 4 year-old kindergarten programs assist children to be “ready for prep”.

Our kinder teachers will be speaking, along with prep teachers from Ascot Vale Primary, Flemington Primary and St Brendans Primary.

The prep teachers will share information about the individual programs they offer, emphasising the skills and attributes they feel are important to assist in a successful transition to prep.

The session is open to all families who are thinking of enrolling in a 3 or 4 year-old kindergarten program and those who are already attending a kindergarten program.  This event is open to all members of the local community so please feel free to pass this information on to family and friends.

RSVP: To Tara by Tuesday 25th July at or telephone 9375 3548

Fundraising update- Cake stall

Thank you to everyone who supported our fundraising cake stall at Flemington Farmers’ Market on Sunday 7th May.  Fortunately we had lovely weather on the day and lots of customers for our baking.  We managed to sell all of the baking before the market even finished! So thank you to those of you who baked the delicious baking and to those of you who volunteered to help on the stall. We couldn’t do it without your support.

We also sold lots of ELAA raffle tickets at the market and we raised a combined total of $725.79. This money will be spent on buying new climbing and play equipment for the kinder.

Thank you

Amanda A’Hara
Fundraising Coordinator
