What activities are offered in your transition program?
The Transition Program is held across October/November/December and comprises of:
- Parent Information Evening: A 90 minute evening session for parents (1 hour presentation, 30 minutes for Q&A, if required). This session aims to support every 2025 Foundation student’s Transition to School.
- Four Onsite Transition Sessions: Students are invited to participate in four onsite sessions with the 2024 Prep team. During these sessions, of approximately 1.5 hours each, children will be provided with opportunities to mix with and meet their peers, to become familiar with the classroom environment and more broadly, the school environment. Please note that students are randomly grouped for these sessions.
- Student / Parent / Teacher Interviews, ‘Meet The 2024 Teacher’: Each family will be allocated an onsite private meeting with your child’s 2025 teacher, in their 2025 classroom. These meetings will be for 10 minutes each and we ask that families bring their Prep 2025 child along. During this meeting, your child will be introduced to their teacher as you support them to feel comfortable, and families will be asked to share helpful insights about their child with the teacher.
- Prep Play Date: Where children and their parents visit the Prep Playground after school to meet their 2025 peers, and play.
All families will receive a personalised email with the details of the transition program for their child.
