Prep Transition

Our Transition Program

At Richmond Primary School, we understand that although the first days of Foundation are exciting, it can also be quite a nervous time for children and parents.

To help children become more familiar with their new school environment we offer a Transition Program that begins prior to your child starting school.

This program aims to get the children familiar with the classrooms and supports them to develop their confidence in the school setting. We run 3 one-hour sessions where the children will be in the classroom environment getting to know the different learning spaces. Children will undertake a variety of engaging learning activities with their peers. During this time the parents will be provided information about the school and our leaders will be available to answer your questions.

There is then a fourth and final session where the children will meet their 2023 classroom teacher. This will be held in what will become their new classroom for the following year. Our purpose is to support the children to feel comfortable and excited about beginning school and our transition program aims to foster a sense of belonging in their new school community.
