The purpose of our transition program is to familiarise your child with our school and introduce them to their class teacher and classroom environment. We aim to work together to ensure transition is an exciting and positive experience for all those involved.
In relation to kindergarten students we believe a smooth and gradual transition from pre-school to their foundation year at school is a vital factor in ensuring your child has a successful start to school life. For new students that are going into years 1-7 in 2021 we will organise a session for them to visit their new class and teacher towards the end of term 4.
Two orientation visits have been scheduled for Tuesday 25th August and Thursday 27th August at 10am. This is an orientation meeting for parents and will involve a presentation in the school hall. Full enrolment packs will be available for completion during this visit. If your child attends Mount Barker Kindergarten please come along on the day that they attend kindergarten. This will help us manage the numbers of people in the room in line with COVID restrictions.
