Students will be attending three transition sessions during November and early December.
These sessions provide your child with the invaluable opportunity to familiarise themselves with the school and learning environment in a supportive and positive way and to get to know each other. It also supports the teachers in getting to know your child and provide valuable information for consideration when placing students in home groups for the following year. Your children will also begin to build trust and relationships and we will learn more about your children’s needs and personalities.
Please be aware that the allocated groups are not fixed and may change throughout the transition program. By Session 3, the home groups will be confirmed.
