Click on these links for further details of transition activities:
During Terms 3 and 4 the Prep teachers will be visiting Pre-schools and Childcare Centres to meet all children enrolled at our school in their early learning environment. This enables your child to become familiar with a teacher from our school in their pre-school environment before formal transition begins. To assist teachers in organising visits we ask that children are enrolled by the end of June 2013. This is the date promoted by Government, Catholic and Independent schools.
1. Visit the school on Open Day - Tuesday, 21st May
