100 days of kindergarten
It was over 6500-days-ago for myself, but for some of our kindergarteners, it was only 100 days since their very first day of primary school.
Some were nervous, many were eager, but most were
super excited for this next adventure.
Gilgandra Primary School kindergarteners celebrated
100 days last week, and they spent the day dressing
up, playing, singing, and eating. What more could you
Speaking to Azariah and Archie, they both agreed
the day was a lot of fun.
“We got to play and eat cupcakes, and drink hot
milos,” said Archie.
“Yeah, it was good,” said Azariah.
School can be tough for littles ones though, and I
asked Azariah and Archie what their least favourite part
about school was.
“Counting to 100 by 10s,” said
Azariah without hesitation.
“Yeah or counting up by
fives is even harder,” said Archie.
On their hundredth day, the students dressed up pretending
to be 100-years-old, and sang a song at assembly.
The students got to spend time with their teachers
and year six buddies while they played all sorts of
games and activities. Something that both Azariah and
Archie love about school.
“My favourite part about school is playing soccer
and writing about the weekend,” said Archie.
“I like social play and lunch,” said Azariah.
“That’s when you play at the end of the day.”
Making the 100 day milestone is quite an achievement for these kindergarteners, but they still have a long way to go until they reach their graduation in 2034.
