A Great First Day…

This open letter, written by BPCS parents, Trixi and Dirk, sums up a terrific first day of school for their children and the way in which learning at Bold Park Community School is engaging and fun.

Brooke, you must have given the children a really great first day. I couldn’t get Asher to tell me anything about his day… until bedtime!!!  (Perhaps the little monkey saved it all up so that he could stretch out the night time cuddles).

So for the last 95 minutes, Asher has been in bed relaying every small detail of the day, laughing out loud at the memories of you, Max and Jasmine swapping names. He has been accurately and earnestly describing how to get to the toilets and talking about the hammock that he went to because things were “too noisy” and he needed alone time. He was remembering being sad but Max helped him at the start of the day, and suddenly he started laughing and jumping on the bed as he remembered Max forgetting where things belonged in the classroom and how funny that was.

I think it will be a late one in our house as despite many reminders to stop talking and breathe deeply, the pair are now comparing school life right back from Felix’s kindy to present day, with Asher’s experiences at kindy and today. 

I’m bringing out the big guns now – a sleep hypnosis for kids!

Thank you for the work you have put into what is a big day for all of us. By the sounds of it, Asher will always have memories of his first day of full-time school.
