Kindergarten classes at Wauchope Public School 2019 | photos

The kindergarten pupils are settling in well to Wauchope Public School, and this year, there are more than 100 of them.

They posed for photos for the Wauchope Gazette with their teachers, Mr Darren Beard, Miss Lauren Boswell, Mrs Janet Lovett, Mrs Lisa Barnett, Mrs Kathryn Bailey, Mrs Michelle Gayle and Mrs Anne Puchert.

The total school population is now over 700, as principal Cameron Osborne explained.

"We submitted our numbers to the Department of Education last week. Our School population is 702 students. I am still waiting for official confirmation re our staffing entitlement for 2019," he said.

"However, we are confident we will be able to maintain our current class structure. We are creating two extra classes to support our students and reduce class sizes particularly in Years 3-6 from school funds."
