Starting school is a big step in your child’s educational journey and can be daunting for both child and parent. We work hard to assist you in this process through our extensive transition process. The aim of our transition program is to familiarise parents and children with our school surroundings and facilities. We aim to provide an enjoyable introduction for your child and a positive beginning to their schooling years.
