Welcome to Kindergarten and Thornton Public School!

We are excited to have your child starting Kindergarten with us and look forward to getting to know your family as you become part of our school community.

Kindergarten is an important year of schooling as children formally begin to develop their literacy and numeracy skills. Our whole school community will help your child adjust to school and help them to feel comfortable.
