At St Peter’s, we aim to ensure the transition into Kindergarten is a smooth and positive experience for all students.
Transition programs involve several opportunities for students to visit the school and participate in classes and playground activities, while their parents can socialise and meet other new parents. Staff also conduct information sessions for parents to learn vital information about school readiness.
Orientation follows a similar pattern each year and the school community is informed of specific dates.
New kindergarten students are well and truly a part of the school community prior to their official first day of school. Kindergartens receive invitations and letters from their Year 6 buddies prior to starting school to ensure that they have at least one special friend on arrival at school.
Students transitioning to high school are supported by involvement in transition days at San Clemente High School, Mayfield, where the majority of St Peter’s students choose to continue their Catholic education. The classroom teachers and Learning Support teachers are also available to discuss learning and social needs with representatives of each of the schools our graduating students will be attending.
