It is almost that time of year again where we welcome the children who will begin Kindergarten next year. It is always wonderful to meet our newest students and to see them starting to explore their school. We have play group every Monday at 9:15am. If you are available, now is a great time to bring along your Kinder 2018 child to play group to become familiar with the school and maybe meet a new friend, or two.
Kinder Orientation begins on November 15th. There will be information for families and it is a great opportunity for your child to start feeling like a real Primary School student! They will meet the students who start school with them next year and see how a real classroom works. Even if you have other students at the school, this is about our Kinder 2018 students feeling a real sense of belonging at HGPS. It won't just be big brother/sister's school any more- it will be theirs too!
If you need enrolment forms, please see the front office as soon as possib...
Selective high schools cater for the specific needs of high achieving gifted students who may otherwise be without sufficient classmates at their own academic and social level. Selective schools help gifted and talent students to learn by grouping them with other gifted and talented students, teaching them in specialised ways and providing educational materials at the appropriate level. Parents apply when the student is in Year 5. The students sit the test in March of Year 6.
To be considered for placement students must sit the Selective High School Placement Test. For information about applying and the placement process go to https://education.nsw.gov.au/public-schools/selective-high-schools-and-opportunity-classes/year-7.
