Learning programmes begin for children at 8.55am each morning, when children (Kindergarten to Yr 6)** , families and staff meet for Yunggaballi, our daily morning gathering. Children in Kindergarten to Year 6 are welcome to arrive from 8.30am. Children go directly to The River area, where they are supervised until the start of the learning day at 8.55am. We greet each other – ‘Yumalundi’ (Ngunnawal greeting), share ideas, jokes and songs as we commence our day as a community.
Fruit, Snack and Lunch eating breaks are taken indoors and supervised by the Learning Group teachers. Children have two Playbreak periods throughout the day. Playbreak times occur across two separate timetables. This important structure allows for smaller groups at play together, and enables teachers to support play behaviours and relationships in a way that is consistent with our Respectful Relationships Framework.
**please note that Preschool children are taken by parents/carers directly to their learning areas at 9am, with pick-up time at 3pm.
