Transition to School

Manifold Heights Prep Transition Program

Our Prep Transition Program consists of three orientation visits during October, November and December, and ideally, we hope to see your child attend each of them. This will give us the best opportunity to get to know each child, their individual personalities and needs, and will assist us as we begin the process of formulating class groups for Prep 2023. Of course, it will also give your child a chance to familiarise themselves more fully with the school and specifically, the Prep area.  Each session lasts for 90 minutes and we gradually get children to be independent with the transition visits

Our Transition Visits are as follows, dates and times to be confirmed closer to the time:

  • Visit 1 – Tuesday 11th October, 9:30am – 11:00am, Prep classrooms. This session is designed to provide students with an introduction to school and begin the exciting transition from Kinder to School.
  • Visit 2 – Wednesday 9th November, 9:30am – 11:00am, Prep classrooms. This session is designed to provide students with an introduction to school and begin the exciting transition from Kinder to School.
  • Visit 3 – Tuesday 6th December, 9:30am – 12noon, Prep classrooms.  This session is an orientation session for all Kinder children attending Manifold Heights Primary School in 2023 to meet their new teacher and classmates.  This is the designated orientation day across the State.

 

A Parent Information Evening will also be held Wednesday 7th September at 6:30 pm.  Full details on Prep 2023 Transition will be sent to families on 15th August 2022.

The children may move around to different rooms over the course of the transition process to enable them to meet a range of other students and staff. (Please be aware that the 2023 Prep Teaching Staff have not yet been appointed, so the current Prep staff may not be working in the team next year.)

We look forward to seeing you all!
