Thornton Public School

In order to make 2021 a successful school year for your child, we would like to begin a process where your child becomes familiar with the school, the locations of the classrooms and some familiar faces of staff and students. In these sessions the teachers will focus on understanding their capabilities; begin to establish and create a rapport; build their confidence and help instill a strong sense of themselves as successful learners with a love of learning. We will provide secure, positive and stimulating learning environments that cater for each child’s capabilities and foster high expectations. We will continue to provide excellent teachers for our young learners. At the same time we will seek to develop in our young learners a positive sense of identity and a genuine respect for others. Dates will be Tuesday 10th, 17th & 24th November Wednesday 11th, 18th & 25th November
