Kayley's keen for big school

AS the potential dread of returning to school looms over the heads of many children, five-year-old Kayley Murray was yesterday enjoying the last days of her holidays by the river at Cochran Park with her grandparents.

She is filled with anticipation and excitement about the school year beginning and just cannot stop smiling.

Having just graduated from Blinky Bills Pre-School, Kayley is due to start her first day of “big school on Thursday” at St Josephs Primary.

An ear-to-ear grin spread across Kayley's face as she spoke about her “new lunchbox, school bag and uniform”.

Some of her friends from preschool will go with her to St Josephs and she will be flanked by her big sister, Natasha and big brother, Hayden through the school gates tomorrow. Her grandmother, Joy Stucky, is glad for this “familiar atmosphere” as, hopefully, her granddaughter will not suffer “big school” nerves many parents and children know all too well.
