It was a big for preps starting their first day of school at Cranbourne Primary School but they all took it in their stride.

The boys and girls got to know their new classmates through games, and a visit to the library.

Foundation (prep) coordinator Sarah Prossor said the pupils enjoyed quiet reading time, a snake craft activity and practising writing the letter ‘S’ through songs and using rice, paint bags and playdough.

“Our school values pride – introducing the letter P for persistence. Students attempted to make domino tracks and show persistence when they fall over,” she said.

Star News photographer Catherine Smith was there to capture the memorable moments.
