Mid-Year Reception

Mid Year ReceptionSt Peter’s Girls’ School offers parents the choice of two intakes per year for our Reception classes. The Mid-Year Reception class, commencing in Term 3 (July), is designed specifically for girls turning five years of age from May through to September.

While public schools have recently moved to provide one entry point for Reception students, St Peter’s Girls’ School will continue to offer the July intake. We believe that girls at this age are ready for school and can make the transition from a play-based learning environment (such as our ELC) and can reap the rewards of extra time at this crucial learning stage.

School readiness within an International Baccalaureate school today extends beyond the intellect and includes a range of transferable skills, including social skills, communication skills, thinking skills, research skills and self-management skills. Students are supported to develop socially responsible attitudes that lead to thoughtful and appropriate action. Students are given many opportunities through their inquiry learning to choose, act and decide on their actions and to make a difference in the world.

The social, emotional and behavioural readiness of the student plays an increasingly important role in learning success. As students enter the school environment they require greater levels of co-operation and teamwork and the ability to work with a wide range of students.

Mid-Year Reception enrolment enquiries can be directed to the Enrolments Office on 8334 2215.

Why should I start my daughter in Mid-Year Reception?

Many parents debate when to start their daughter in Reception.

The Mid-Year Reception class provides parents with a convenient choice to start their child’s formal schooling in July.

There are many reasons why girls in particular are better suited to starting Reception at five years of age.
