At Yarra Primary School, we believe a seamless transition from pre-school to Foundation is important in establishing a positive start to school life. During our transition program your child/children will participate in a number of exciting activities led by our Specialist teachers in Science, Art, Japanese and Performing Arts. Children are encouraged to participate in the transition program in order to familiarise them with the school and better prepare them for the year ahead. Your child/children will also be given the opportunity to get to know the Foundation teachers and meet their Year 6 buddy.
During the Transition Program, parents will be invited to information sessions that will cover topics of interest such as, the organisation and attendance of Preps in the first weeks of the new school year, the use of Compass (communication tool), details of ordering School Uniforms online and the registration process of YOSH (Yarra Out of School Hours program),and the process for lunch orders (Fridays only). They will also cover the participation of parents as volunteers,School Councillors and classroom helpers.
