All smiles on first day

THE first day of Kindy ususally sees a few tear-streaked faces but there were only smiles at Narranga Public yesterday.

New students and their parents packed the hall for their first assembly yesterday morning, and judging from the lack of tears at least from the children going to school for the first time is a positive experience.

Aunty Pauline Kovacs dropped off Joshua Place, 5, for his first day at Narranga and she said he had been dressed and ready to go since 6am.

"He loves his new school shoes and he's very excited," Pauline said.

Joshua said the subject he's most looking forward to is 'playground'.

"School's good. I get to play and draw," the bright-eyed student said.

Little cousin, Stephan, was as excited as Joshua.

"He was watching all the boys get ready Joshua has brothers who go to Narranga, too and Stephan can't wait to go to school, either," Pauline said.
