Kindergarten Transition 2022 – 2023 Program
This program is designed to encourage a seamless transition to school for both children and parents, as well as an opportunity to learn more about commencing school and the routines involved. In addition, it is a chance for us to learn more about our new students and their families. It is important that all families take advantage of these sessions. If work or other commitments prevent your attendance, please contact the school office to arrange an alternate appointment.

Our school Counsellor and school Chaplain will be available to discuss their roles. A representative from South Lakes Community Centre will be invited along to outline support that is available in our community.
