I HAVE A CHILD IN FOUNDATION NEXT YEAR

If you are considering Pentland PS for your Foundation child, information evenings are held in June/July every year.  This is a great place to start.  A pamphlet advertising the time, date and venue will be available through all the local kinders early in April/May each year so be on the lookout for them. Failing that, ring us directly for all the details.

To start primary school your child must turn five years of age (or older) by April 30th of the year they start school.

Following the information evening we conduct tours of the school and are available to answer any of your questions.

If you are successful in gaining a place for your Foundation child at Pentland PS we conduct a transition program in Term four where your child will have the opportunity to participate in “practice” days in readiness for their first year of school.

Respect

the regard we show each other by treating them with consideration, courtesy, attentiveness, appreciation, esteem, admiration

Trust

when we can count on each other to do the right thing, when we have faith or confidence in the certainty of something

Honesty

truthfulness, sincerity, faithfulness, openness

Communication

passing on or making things known to each other

Learning

finding out, trying new things, gaining experience, getting better at doing things

Pride

feeling happy and satisfied about ourselves, our peers and our school community
