Orientation Information:
 

Individual Family Meet and greets:

Getting to know all our families it important and vital for a smooth transition into school life.

In Term 3 all enrolled families will be invited to meet one-on-one with a member of staff where we can have a chat about your needs and/or concerns and get to know us a little more.

Transition sessions:

The Foundation/Prep Transition program traditionally runs in Term 4 in the year preceding school entry.

These sessions provide an opportunity for Foundation/Prep students to participate in a variety of engaging Literacy and Numeracy activities along with exploring the classroom environment. They are designed to prepare children for primary school and help them feel more confident about what to expect at school.

It is recommended that your child attends all four sessions. Dates for 2022 Transition are yet to be confirmed.

 

Additional Documentation:

For Australian born students, we will need a current Immunisation Summary and an original birth certificate for your child.
