Transition to School Program

Term Two – Open Morning

Interested families are invited to come into the school and be taken on a tour by some of our student leaders. Parents and children are welcomed by the Principal in the Library and any questions can be asked. Information and dates of the Information Session and Transition program are given.

Term Three – Information Session

In Term Three we hold an Information Session for the parents of students who have been offered a position at our school. This morning is an opportunity to hear from the Principal, see the school uniforms, meet other parents, hear about the 4-week Transition Program in Term Four and ask any questions.

Term Four – 4-week Transition Program

Prospective, accepted students attend a 4-week Program that focuses on getting to know each child prior to commencing school. The students will meet their ‘Buddy’, be taken with their parents on a school tour, participate in play activities with other students, join in singing songs, listen to books read by the teacher, and become familiar with the classrooms, teachers and other students. Parents attend information sessions with various speakers while the children are in the classroom with the Kindergarten Teachers.
