I understand that you are scared
to wave your child goodbye
and leave him in a teacher’s hands
don’t worry if you cry!
I’m used to weeping parents
It’s hard to leave I know.
But it’s time to share him (just a bit)
To help him learn and grow.
Let me reassure you
That I’ll give your child my best
I’ll wipe his tears, soothe his fears
And change his dirty vest!
If your darling child is full of cold
I’ll blow their nose all day
Just like you, I’ll care for them
In a special way.
I’ll treat him like I would my own
I’ll catch him from a fall and
If there is ANY problem
I’ll be sure to tell you all.
It’s true he’ll grow to love us
They’ll talk of school a lot
It doesn’t mean they hate you
And that you should lose the plot!
I’ll tell you a secret..
That when your child is here
They talk to me as much of you
Of this please have no fear.
You’ll always be their mother
Whilst teachers come and go
To them you are their number one
This I truly know.
Soon you’ll see some changes
In your little girl or boy
They’ll become more independent
And to see this, it’s a joy!
I’ll teach them all I have to give
To share, climb and to write
But to you they safely will return
To tuck them in at night.
With love from a teacher…
We are so excited to welcome you on your first day at Walker Primary School. We have set up the classrooms all ready for you and we are going to have such a lot of fun!
Some things to remember -
Your child starts at 9.10am on their first day. From then on, your child will wait in the line, in the playground and come in at 8.55am everyday.
We will provide fruit and milk every morning, if your child is already 5 you will need to pay for the milk, if you wish, at www.coolmilk.com
We appreciate that there are a lot of new routines coming your way. We are always available to answer any questions at the end of the school day.
