It’s fair to say there was an air of uncertainty with almost everything in 2020. It was difficult to make decisions for the coming weeks, nevermind thinking about 2021 and what will be best for your child heading into Prep. With reduced days in Kinders and disruption to the Learning Program, we found parents questioning what Prep 2021 (or even Prep 2022) would look like and how it will meet their child’s needs.
We invite you to access our Ready... Set... PREP webinar recording, with the following speakers:
* Dr Amy Berry - Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER)
* Catherine Waters - Kinder Director JJ McMahon
* Erin Juers - Parent to Year 1 2020 student and Prep 2021 student
* Jennifer Gray - Former Principal of Our Lady of Good Counsel Primary School, Deepdene
During this 50-minute webinar, we discuss:
1. Academic and social readiness
2. Transitioning from Kinder to Prep smoothly and confidently
3. A parent’s perspective on remote learning and Kinder disruption
4. Specific adjustments OLGC will be making to the Prep curriculum in 2021 (and beyond if needed)
Complete the details below and the Webinar Recording will be on it's way to the email address you provide!

During the situation of COVID-19, OLGC students were learning at home. To ensure continuity of learning we were connecting with students through Google Suite.
OLGC has a variety of strategies to continue to support physical distancing and good hygiene practices to reduce the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission within the practical limitations of a school environment. The first priority of our school is the health and safety of all members of the school community.
OLGC is committed to building a community of faith and learning in a safe, nurturing and academically engaging environment. At the heart of our endeavours is the student, where the development of a positive growth mindset supports the diverse and changing needs of every child.
We are a welcoming and active community aiming to build strong relationships between school, families, our parish, our local community and the wider community. All members of this school and parish are called to contribute to this vibrant school community.
