Australian Christian College Hume has new kids on the block, and it’s not just the new Preps.
The Benalla college has opened its doors to three and four-year-olds with its new kindergarten facilities.
Principal Norm Fitzgerald said everybody had been supportive of the addition to the school.
‘‘It’s going to make the school a lot more vibrant,’’ Mr Fitzgerald said.
‘‘It will have a bit more of a full feel.’’
With two dedicated kindergarten teachers, Jess Waite and Wendy Smith, the facilities boast a bright, refurbished indoor room stocked with new equipment, and an outside area with new fencing, new turf, a sandpit, shade sail and concrete surface for riding bikes.
The school caters for kinder to Year 6, but Mr Fitzgerald said the school’s long-term goal was to offer an education to students from kinder through to Year
‘‘Our long-term vision is to have a vibrant, full campus that prepares students for life from a Christian world view,’’ he said.
‘‘We see (the kindergarten) as a way of feeding in to the school program.’’
The new kindergarten has 15 students enrolled in its four-year-old class, and five in the three-year-old class.
