Transition Programs

Kinder – Foundation

The transition program for next year’s Foundation students starts in Term 2 with Foundation Information Sessions which provide general information about our school and our educational programs.  During Term 4 a number of structured visits take place. Throughout this program parents who have particular questions, or who need further information, are welcome to call the school and talk to the Principal or Transition Coordinator.

Years 6 – 7

The Years 6 to 7 transition consists of a visit to one of our providers, Gisborne Secondary College during term 2. This visit is activity based and gives students an understanding of secondary college programs. Additionally, transition coordinators from other local secondary colleges visit and speak with our Year 6 students. We have close contact with transition coordinators from our local secondary colleges and work to ensure our students are well placed in relation to their social needs. Special transition programs can be developed for students with special learning or social needs. A state-wide transition day is held for Year 6 students at their new school for the following year in term 4.
