100 Days of Prep!

“Children are not things to be molded, but are people to be unfolded.” Jess Lair was on the money with this pearl of wisdom, but as any parent of a prep child would attest, one of the greatest periods of unfolding happens in the first year of school.

Kids learn about friendships, routines, listening, speaking, sharing, taking turns, not to mention planting the seeds of literacy and numeracy that they’ll keep building upon through their entire school journey and beyond. Such a lot to take in! This week students at our Penbank campus took pause in their busy curriculum to celebrate their first 100 days of school by dressing up as 100-year-olds. What do 5yos and 100yos have in common? Well looking at these shrinkled little faces, I’d say joy. And a good serve of chutzpah.
