A new school year is not far away, and the dedicated team of teachers at Braddock Public School aims to work with parents and children to make the school transition easier.

On Thursday, September 14 the school will host a parent information session for 2017 enrolments.

“We will be having a Meet and Greet barbecue at 5.30pm followed by an information session in our library,” principal Michelle Drage said. “This is a great opportunity to meet our staff, see our facilities and learn more about Braddock PS.”

Braddock Public School has 264 students from kindergarten to year six.

“We also have an Early Literacy Learning Program (called the BELL) for four year olds who are in our area to prepare them for school the next year,” Ms Drage said.

Ms Drage said technology was present in every classroom, including interactive white boards and iPads. The school has a music program, a ukulele band,  drumming group and a developing brass band.

Braddock also provides extensive opportunities in the performing and visual arts, including dance and drama and has specialised staff to support these programs.

“From the moment you walk into Braddock Public School you can see that all involved with the school are here to make a difference to the children at the school,” she said.

“The difference that we make is not only in the academic development of all students, but in the social and emotional growth and well being, to ensure all our students are safe, respectful and responsible learners both now and into the future.”

Mr Drage said their core business is to ensure the needs of all students are met academically, socially and emotionally.
