School Readiness Screening

We held our second Pre-School Screening session for this year on Saturday 9th September, and want to thank all the families who registered to have their children tested for both hearing issues and gross motor skills development…all prior to the children starting school next year. 

The audiology results highlighted that 25% of the children tested required further follow-up to monitor their hearing levels, and 11% of the children were flagged as requiring further monitoring of their gross motor skills.  These results highlight how important projects such as this are to support the health and well-being of our local community.

We extend a big thankyou to the audiology and physiotherapy Masters students from the University of Melbourne, who carried out the testing (under supervision), and Hampton Primary School for generously allowing us to use their school as the testing venue. Also, thanks for the support from Bayside City Council who managed all the registrations from families in our local area. 

Finally, a big thank you also to our Club members who manned the registration desk on the day, and a special thank you to Marie for leading this project. We look forward to being back again next year when we continue to provide this service to the Bayside community.
