Transition to our School

This transition to school program allows our future students to experience their classroom and engage in fun, learning activities, exposure to the school routine and to experience safe play within our natural bush environment.

The three morning sessions run once a week over three consecutive weeks. The orientation program is run early in Term 4. Our future students are encouraged to attend all sessions. The first session also runs parallel to a parent information session where parents obtain all the necessary information for their child starting school.

To help prepare your child for school, talk about what school might be like and why children go to school, enjoy reading together, and create time to play with pencils, crayons, and paper. A meeting with our Kindergarten teacher can also be arranged.
