PBPS KTP Parent Information Session Video

Starting school is a significant event in the life of children and their families. Strong relationships and information sharing between families, early childhood settings and schools help support a child's successful transition to school. The following NSW Government website provides information and resources, including a ‘Starting School’ video, to prepare you and your child ready for school.

Daisy's First Day

We hope you enjoy reading Daisy’s First Day written by Kathryn Ford. This is a picture book about Daisy the koala on her first day at primary school. This is a great book to read to your child to help get them ready and excited for Kindergarten at PBPS!

NSW Foundation Style

In Kindergarten, we do lots of activities to build our understanding of the foundation movements to write letters in NSW Foundation Style. You and your child can have fun practicing writing letters to get ready for big school! Your child could practice writing their first name and recognising the letters in the alphabet.
