@Ahalfdozen your lunch boxes look awesome!
I make lunch the night before , keep it in the fridge, add the ice bricks when we leave and even at pick up it's still cold!
DD starts ACT Kindergarten next year. She's going to the school that her preschool is a part of. The preschool is in a different location to the primary school but DD has been there for an excursion
We have our orientation in late Nov. I'm holding off until then and then I'll start getting ready. Although I know DD will want the school dress so I might find the secondhand shop and grab one.
@witherwings, there is something so special about the very first day of school with your first child, such a lovely milestone. My first born started Kindergarten in NSW as well and I loved the way NSW did transition over a matter of days.
DS starts pre-primary next which is his first year of full time school. He did 3 days a week of kindy this year and has already grown so much
ETA we are in WA and he will continue on at the same school. I'm not sure I am ready for him to go 5 days a week but he sure is!
Dd2 starts prep next year... I'm not ready..
Dd1 starts prep next year and I'm definitely not ready. She is spending two hours each Thursday in a prep class for this term and she is nervous and I am too!!!!!
My little girl starts prep next year.
So far I have enrolled her, have bought a skirt and a skort towards uniforms but still have to do book shopping and shirt shopping oh and shoes. So scared she's my first and only child (@ the mo) but I'm scared I'm going to sleep in, I don't know what to pack for lunches or how to support all these changes.. any tips would help a lot!
My DS is starting kindergarten in NSW next year too! Our local primary school do a 2hr program each week this term for the kids, so he started this week. So far so good, he is so ready and his teacher seems really nice. I will start collecting uniforms over the next term I think, just bits and pieces each week or fortnight. Shoes I will wait and get fitted properly just before he starts. He is our eldest so first timers here too!
