Hillside Parent Information Sessions (for parents new to Hillside Kindergarten)
Over the next two weeks at Hillside we will be offering run some short (approximately one hour) information sessions for parents new to Hillside Kindergarten. On Thursday, 30 August, (9:00 -10:00am or 12.45 – 1.45pm), we will be talking about Home-School Partnership. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions, hear some general information about communication, school procedures and policies and to meet other parents. We will also talk about how we run our parent volunteer/participation program, so if you are interested in taking part in our parent volunteer program please come along.
On Thursday, 6 September, (9:00 – 10:00am or 12.45 – 1.45pm), we will be talking about the Primary Years Program (PYP). This is an opportunity for you to learn more about the curriculum and our PYP Program of Inquiry.
To attend one or both sessions, please call the Hillside office to reserve your place, but note that once a session reaches “capacity”, you may be asked if you can come on another day. The slides for both presentations will be uploaded to the Hillside website for parents that are unable to attend these sessions.
Bringing Active Learning Home
(Workshop date: Rescheduled! Thursday, 27 September TIME: 3:45-4:45 pm)
Are the children just playing? Or are they actively learning? This workshop aims to demonstrate what active learning looks like at Hillside, and we hope parents will take away ideas on how to support and extend learning at home.
Our K1 and K2 teachers will each share different learning opportunities with parents and explain the learning intention behind each one (with the aim of enabling parents to reinforce and extend their child’s learning at home). We hope that this parent workshop will provide parents in attendance with a bank of ideas and activities to do with their child at home.
