unanderrasquare75Our Kindergarten Orientation and Transition program is about making children’s and parents’ transition to primary school a smooth and settled beginning. 

At St Pius X there are four  Kindergarten Transition sessions organised for Term 4. In this time children have the opportunity to get to know the teachers and other kindergarten students. Teachers also use this time to observe the children and the skills and qualities they bring with them to school. Attendance to all sessions is encouraged as it allows children to ease into the school environment and feel more comfortable with the staff and other students. 

During each transition session a different workshop is also provided for parents. Workshops include information about Best Start, English, Mathematics, Religious Education, the use of technology in the classroom and the daily routines of Kindergarten.

Each Kindergarten Transition session begins at 9.00 in the school hall. The children will remain with the teachers where they will participate in some games, a learning activity including an ipad activity and a mini tour around the school.

At the end of each session the children will have the opportunity to share with parents all the fun things they have been doing with their teachers. Each session will finish at approximately 11:00am
