Our Prep Transition Program is the beginning of your child’s journey to school, where they will have many opportunities to learn about our school and begin settling in.
At Stockdale Road Primary School we run an extensive transition program aimed at making your child’s pathway from pre-school to school a seamless experience. Our goal is to have students who feel happy, safe and excited about school from day one of the school year.
Our students transition to a number of secondary settings and we are in regular contact with these schools during their transition process to ensure a smooth transition.
Year 6 students will have the opportunity to visit their secondary school during Term 4 to familiarise themselves with the new environment, procedures and begin to build new relationships with secondary staff and their peers. Information regarding this process will be provided to parents throughout the year.
