Introduction Morning School Starters


Dear Parents/Guardians of School Starters,


We are happy to inform you that the latest infection control measures now allow us to finally welcome our new Year 1 students to Birralee for a visit next week. 

Due to the current restrictions in place, we will organise two separate visits this year. One for children currently enrolled in Birralee kindergarten, and one for children currently attending other kindergartens.  These visits will take place on 15th and 16th June 2020. 


Unfortunately, due to infection control measures, it will not be possible for parents to join their children on these visits. We will therefore organise digital parents meetings at 18:00 on both days, where we will provide more information for parents. 


Monday 15th June 2020: 

School starters who are currently attending Birralee Kindergarten


Tuesday 16th June 2020:

We kindly ask you to let us know with the link provided in the email if your child will be attending. If your child cannot attend, we would be happy to arrange a visit for you and your child during week 26. However, please note that during this individual visit your child will not be able to meet his/her teacher and fellow peers.   

Best regards,


Elin J. Hitchman Principal
