St Michael’s believes that a positive and comprehensive introduction to school life is imperative to the success of children and parents. For many Prep students, this is their first experience of a school environment and for many parents, the first time they have engaged with a school since they were a student themselves. St Michael’s offers the following process of orientation and induction into Prep.

This morning usually runs in Term 4 week 7 and 8 in November. These sessions will consist of a 2-hour morning program running for 2 consecutive weeks for parents and children. The session times will normally be on a Tuesday and Thursday each week. Sessions will run from 8.45am – 10.45am. The parents’ sessions will be on ‘current hot’ topics taking place in the school hall while the children are engaged with the prep teachers in the prep classrooms. The children attending Transition will be participating in activities that provide fun and easy ways to learn and remember class rules and routines.
Transition helps children feel that they are an important part of the group and it teaches children how to express themselves in a positive way. Above all, Transition provides a place where children can form and enjoy healthy relationships before commencing their academic school year. More information is posted by mail.
