Kindergarten Blue and Red
Welcome to North Kalgoorlie Kindergarten. My name is Margaret Miller and I am the teacher for Red and Blue Groups at North Kalgoorlie Kindergarten. I love working at North Kalgoorlie Primary School and I believe that our biggest strength is the wonderful parents and children who make up our school community.
I have a qualification in Early Childhood Education and I have been teaching for 33 years. I started my teaching career in the Pilbara where I taught for 6 years before returning to the Goldfields in 1995. I have been lucky enough to have been a part of the wonderful team at North Kalgoorlie Primary School for nearly 25 years. The bulk of my teaching experience has been in Pre-Primary and Kindergarten. I find teaching and working with young children and their families to be an extremely rewarding profession. I love the energy and enthusiasm that little people bring to class with them each and every day and feel very privileged to be a part of their exciting learning journey through Kindergarten.

WELCOME BACK TERM TWO
Welcome back all parents and carers to a very busy and exciting term 2. Parent Help will commence at Kindergarten in Week 3 and if you would like to come into our classroom to help please write your name down on the roster. At North Kalgoorlie Primary School parent participation in student learning is highly valued. We are all partners in your child’s education and welcome your input into our learning program. Parent Help is from 9.00 a.m. to 10.30 a.m.
TEACHING AND LEARNING
This term one of our class themes will be learning about occupations and the different people who live and work in our community. As we have done in previous years, we are hoping to invite some of our town’s emergency services to come and speak with the children about their roles in the community. We would also like some of our parents to come in and talk to the students about their jobs. If any member of your family has a job that they would like to talk to our Kindy children about, please come and see me and we can sort out a date and time. In the eyes of your children you all do amazing things.
