Dear Families, Just a friendly reminder that this
event is coming up.
Roadshow Starting School 2020
We have after consultation, developed a new format for the Starting
School Expo which means we bring a road show to you, making it easier to attend
in your area and with minimal set up. The road show will come to 3 locations
across the Eurobodalla in March 2019.
Narooma Wednesday 27, Batemans Bay Thursday 28, Moruya Friday 29, of
March, 6.00 – 8.00pm at the local libraries.
Research on transitioning to school, shows the more community engagement
the greater the overall outcomes for families. It’s an opportunity to promote
your service and support the success of children starting school in the
All you have to do is come along with information about your
school/service and talk to parents about what you have to offer and what they
need to consider with their child starting school.
There will be an expert panel to give parents an opportunity to hear
from a variety of knowledgeable people about school readiness. Dr Kristy
Goodwin will be on the panel in Batemans Bay and Moruya. Dr Kristy is a
children’s technology and development expert, speaker, and author on raising
healthy happy kids in a digital age. It is hoped that with thoughtful discussion and question/answer
time, we as a community will support successful outcomes for families of future
kindergarteners. Dr Kristy has suggested that she
could also do some professional learning for educators,(she is a NESA-endorsed
provider) during this visit and we have already covered the logistics cost to
have her come to the area so you would be only have to cover her cost for your
session. How fantastic would that be to have her at your centre, one on one
with your staff.
