Tailoring your learning needs

By Daniel Hughes

The Deniliquin Christian School is taking enrolments for kindergarten and year seven for 2021.

The school, which celebrates 25 years next year, offers a unique schooling experience for Kindergarten to Year 10.

School principal Maryanne Jones, said being a small school "means we can tailor learning needs to individual students".

“Our student/teacher ratio allows students to get more attention and more time with teachers which goes a long way to improve both their education and wellbeing.”

Starting school is a big deal for both parents and students.

Kindergarten teacher Carolyn Murphy, believes the role of the teacher is to ensure a positive transition for new students.

“For many youngsters, it’s the first time they have been away from their parents for any period of time, so we try to make Kindy a pleasant and happy experience where they can feel they are loved and cared for,” Mrs Murphy said.

Alli Miller, whose son Jed is in Kindergarten this year, believes that the school enables, “every child to showcase their own special talents and abilities as well as learn in unique ways that help them to do the best they can”.

“Because the classes are small, there's so much interaction in the classroom which makes it so enjoyable for all of the kids,” Mrs Miller added.

Deniliquin Christian School offers a real choice to parents looking for a nurturing and individualised learning environment for their children.

Ms Jones believes the school has a wonderful and committed staff that are prepared to do more than just teach.

“The school values a holistic approach to education, better preparing students for all of life." she said.

“Anyone interested in enrolling at Deniliquin Christian School is welcome to come along, check us out and talk to students and teachers.”

Parents and carers are warmly invited to attend an information evening for Year 7 on Wednesday, September 9 and Kindergarten on Thursday, September 10.

Both events will start at 7.30pm held at the school library.
