Kindergarten visits

If your child is in one of our surrounding kindergartens, keep any eye out for Bellmere State School staff paying a visit. We take the time to head into kindergartens and make our faces familiar, as well as provide opportunities for children to engage with our teachers to ask questions about school transitions and share stories on what school is all about. These visits also provide an opportunity for our staff to talk with Kindergarten teachers to ensure that your child's social / emotional and learning needs are met as they transition to school.

We look forward to establishing a partnership with you as your child embarks on their first formal year of schooling at Bellmere State School.​​
