I imagine many children will have shared with the important people in their lives that our new transition program commences Monday!
This year we have planned a whole school approach to transition. Transitioning into Prep and Year 7 has always been a successful approach to support children as they move into the next phase of their schooling. We have taken this one step further and have planned for a whole school transition program that will operate each Monday during literacy block. During this time all children will be involved in a variety of literacy tasks with staff who will be noting the strengths/skill level of the children and their attitude toward learning. The children will spend time with different teachers during the program but will remain with the same children in either their current grade or their ‘specialist colour’ group. The program will run for four weeks.
