The Prep 2019 orientation information was posted Thursday 20 September, 2018.

The Prep 2019 Orientation packs have been posted out to relevant families. We have three orientation groups, Group A, B and C.  The orientation groups have no bearing on the grade the child will eventually be allotted to.

Final grade placement will be advised on Orientation Day, Tuesday December 11th when we ask all new Prep 2019 students to attend between 9.15am and 10.45am to meet their new teacher, if they are available, and to spend a small amount of time in their new class with their classmates.

It is an exciting time for the new students and can be a little stressful for the parents if this is their first child attending school. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the office on 5282 1261 or email us at  Please allow time for a response.

Crafty Tales offers craft workshops in the school holidays from various cafes in Geelong.

As part of his studies, he will be completing an internship at Surfside Primary School, Ocean Grove, for the first six weeks of term four. Congratulations and good luck Mr Moylan.
