SIBLING POLICY CHANGE 2018
Mt Gravatt Community Kindergarten Management Committee 2018 would like to advise of a policy change regarding sibling admissions from 2023.
The current sibling policy, whereby a sibling of a child who has attended or is attending Mt Gravatt Community Kindergarten is guaranteed a place for their eligible year, has been in place since 2011/12.
After discussion around our Code of Ethics and community consideration, the committee and staff believe this policy is not fair or equitable for all families in the community and does not provide the same opportunity for all to be placed on a waiting list.
New policy implementation:
With immediate effect, all children who wish to go on the 2023 waiting list (and all lists after this year), will be placed on the list as per the order in which they complete their waiting list application form and pay the associated waiting list application fee.
The 2023 waiting list is for children born between 1 July 2018 and 30 June 2019.
Siblings already on a waiting list:
All siblings already on a waiting list for 2020, 2021 or 2022 will NOT lose their advantage or place on the waiting list. Their status will remain the same, provided they have completed the waiting list application form and paid the application fee.
Siblings eligible, but not yet on a waiting list: 2022, 2021, 2022:
These siblings may still be considered under the ‘old’ sibling policy and be placed on a waiting list, provided they have completed the waiting list application form and paid the application fee.
Support from Mt Gravatt Community Kindergarten for implementation of policy:
Staff and committee members will be proactive in reminding current families who are due to have babies from now (July 2018) onwards to put their newborns on the relevant waiting list as soon as possible.
The staff and committee welcome all families from the Mt Gravatt community to go on its waiting lists and hope this revision in policy will encourage more families to do so and provide a more even playing field for all to have a chance of attending Mt Gravatt Community Kindergarten.
Open Day 2020 - postponed
Our annual Open Day planned for mid-May has been postponed due to Covid-19. We hope to host the open day later this year when you will have the opportunity to meet teaching staff, committee members and explore our expansive grounds with your family. We are following all the guidelines and regulations from authorities and when it is safe to hold the event, we will advise of the new date. Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding of our community kindergarten.
Our fortnightly playgroup is hopeful of re-starting in Term 3. We will update all families on the Playgroup list in week 1 of Term 3. If your child is on the waiting list for attendance at kindy in 2021 then you are eligible to attend playgroup. If you have not received any information about this yet from us, please contact us via email: email@example.com and we can send you more details.
REFRESH TO OUR PLAYGROUND!
Thanks to the hard work and generosity of our parent management committee this year and years past, they have funded this first part of stage 1 of our master plan for the playground. The once sandy area in front of the shed is now lovely new "grass". There are further plans afoot once grant monies have been obtained to do even more improvements to an already special outdoor space.
