On Thursday February 2, a happy group of kindergarten students started their very first day of big school at Our Lady of Lourdes, Tarro.

Whilst the first day of school is an exciting time, and all of the new students arrived with smiles ready to make new friends and begin their school adventure, some parents were finding it difficult to part with their newly independent sidekicks. 

The new starters were welcomed with a school assembly hosted by Principal Cheryl Henderson and the Year 6 buddies escorted their new starters to their classroom for a play whilst parents said goodbye for the day.

The two classes of kinders explored their classrooms and excitement filled the air as the new school year began!
