Prep 2018 Transition dates

Our 2018 transition program has been developed to familiarise you and your child with our school environment.  There will be four daytime sessions for you and your child plus two evening sessions for parents/guardians only; we encourage you to attend all sessions. When you arrive for each daytime session, please register at the school office and collect a name tag for your child. Your child will be randomly allocated into groups for the first three sessions; these groups are not the 2018 Prep home groups.
