Meet Áine Kelly – our first pre-schooler to transition to primary!

Áine has just turned five and moved from the ACG Tauranga pre-school over to the primary school, where she joins her siblings Cade, Year 11, Diaz, Year 9, and Finn, Year 3.

You’ve just turned five – how was your birthday party?

The best part was my bouncy castle getting popped up. There was a slide and a ladder as tall as a roof. I closed my eyes when I went down the slide. There were sharks at the bottom that spat out water! My friends came and they had fun.

How did you feel before your first day?

I felt very excited because I wanted to come to Mrs Stevens’ class.

What have your first days been like?

Mrs Stevens helped me. My brother gave me a big hug on my first day. Blake helped me in the classroom.

What’s the best thing about school?

The best thing about school is Show and Tell. I can talk in front of the class. I love painting. I like counting and writing numbers and I love books.
