Prep

Prep at One Mile State School

 
One Mile SS currently has three Prep Classes situated at the southern end of the school. The three classrooms form an area that makes the first year of school less confronting with a specific play area and close proximity to toilets and drinking taps.
Our older students also help the Prep students settle in by forming a ‘buddy’ relationship with a Year 5 or 6 student. This provides a leadership opportunity for our older students and positive student role model for our Prep students.
Our dedicated teachers and teacher aides provide a supportive and inclusive environment to provide our students with what they need to succeed
 
 

Learning in Prep

 
At One Mile Prep children learn in many different ways including play, organised games, and investigation. They develop important life skills by working with other children and adults. Prep makes connections between school and what your child learns at home and in early childhood education.
Prep at One Mile helps your child
develop:
· A positive approach to learning
· Independence and confidence
· Thinking and problem solving skills

Our staff work collaboratively to provide a range of learning experiences and age appropriate teaching strategies to address the Australian Curriculum. The teachers and teacher aides cater for the different needs of their students to maximize the success of each and every student.
