Priority Admissions Process for GenCE Families

As member schools of Generations Christian Education (GenCE), Small World Christian Kindergarten (Small World), Norwegian International School, and Island Christian Academy (IslandCA) are greatly blessed by the opportunities for collaboration that this affiliation brings. One area in which this collaboration benefits our students is in admissions, as graduates of GeneCE Kindergartens have priority in admissions to GenCE Primary Schools, and participants in GenCE playgroups also have priority in admissions to GenCE Kindergartens.

For the last two years, Small World and IslandCA have implemented a Priority Admissions Process where, rather than formal interviews, teachers from IslandCA visit Small World in Term 1 to observe and assess the children in the classroom in collaboration with Small World teachers. Many of our families have chosen to apply for admission at IslandCA through this process, and we have been delighted to hear about how our graduates are developing and enjoying their time at IslandCA!

In the 2018-19 School Year, Small World students in Junior Kindergarten (equivalent to K1) will be able to apply for admission to IslandCA during Term 3 rather than in Term 1 of Senior Kindergarten (equivalent to K2), and successful applicants will receive IslandCA Year 1 placement offers prior to general applicants.

We hope that this helps to streamline the admissions process for our school community!

[Update] Class Arrangement on Monday – 17h Sept

The government has indicated, that, regardless of the presence or absence of a weather warning, schools should not open until there has been a safety check completed.

After consulting with the Board and Generations,  we have decided that Small World Christian Kindergarten, along with other member schools, will be closed tomorrow. Please make arrangements for your child to be supervised at home or with family as there will not be supervision provided at school until we are able to ensure the campus is safe for staff and students to return.

This is not a normal procedure following bad weather but the significant damage and clean-up required in the community have obviously prompted the government to indicate that schools should take this extra step as a safety precaution.

We do understand that this may place some families in a challenging position but we also take our role in maintaining a high standard of safety, for both staff and students, very seriously.
