A taste of East Freo Primary (EFP)
The really amazing part of EFP is the engagement with the parents. At least 1 parent arrives 30 mins before classes begin and they often sit and read or do a puzzle for 20-30 mins. Class officially starts at 9am so we arrive at 8:30, sit and read for 20 mins, the first bell rings, we begin to clean up, and the parents all move outside and continue to mingle for another 20 mins or so. It is really a special thing and a great reminder what's important in life. I should mention that it is a split of about 70% Mom's and 30% Dad's.
