Early Years Program
Our Early Years program (years Prep – 4) is focused on ensuring a smooth transition to school, developing the foundations for Literacy and Numeracy, personal wellbeing and connection to the school.
The dedicated Early Years centre is spacious and well-resourced through ICT and specialist teachers. Students enjoy Language (German), Art, Music, PE and Library sessions. Netbooks are used extensively, especially for literacy and numeracy programs which include Reading Eggs and Mathletics. Reading recovery operates in Year 1 for those students who need additional literacy assistance. All students participate in the Athletic and Swimming carnivals, while years P-2 also enjoy PMP.
The college values our partnership with parents and encourages as much involvement as parents are able to offer. Helpers are given a training session by the Early Years Coordinator and they are then able to participate in the classroom helper program.
The Parents and Friends of Macleod (PaFM) also provide ways of being involved in what's happening at school.
