Welcome to Willowbank School's Right Start programme!
Right Start is a transition to school programme to help your child get a head start on their learning and support the starting school process. It is taught by Julie Cowan, Deputy Principal of Willowbank School.

Right Start is one afternoon a week and children can attend in the term before they start school. There are strictly limited numbers and there is a small cost. Please email Julie or Chris Day (Executive Officer) at rightstart@willowbankschool.co.nz for an enrolment form.

There is also a parent/caregiver element to Right Start. We require a parent or caregiver to be on site during each Right Start session, so during this time you work with other staff members to learn about ways to support your child's literacy and maths or find out how the teachers assess your child's learning and what happens with that information and more!

Have a look at our pages (see the navigation bar on the right) to see the exciting learning we have been doing!

Check out the page for parents - here you will find information about starting school, the first year at school as well as some information about school at Willowbank.
