SRE Kindergarten Orientation Resources
About this time of year schools are already planning for the next intake of kindergarten children, and most schools will have parent information evenings and one or more “orientation” days for the new kindergarten children to have a taste of “big school”. These may already be taking place, but will certainly be taking place soon after the holidays.
This is a most opportune time for SRE coordinators and advocates to speak to school principals or staff SRE coordinators about informing the new parents about SRE. Many new parents still refer to it as “Scripture” or do not know it even exists.
ICCOREIS has produced a Kinder Orientation Pack which could be used in a number of different ways.
- There is a brochure which can be customized with information about your school to be given out to parents.
- There is a PowerPoint which could be used at a parent information session.
- There are sample letters to be given to parents and to the classroom teacher.
These resources can be downloaded from the links below. Read the Orientation Pack Overview first as it outlines what is contained in the pack and how it can best be used.
These resources are editable so they can be customised for your particular school and with the appropriate local details. If you would liek any more information please feel free to contact Emma Parr (02 8267 4290; email@example.com )
