Transitioning to School

At Brighton Primary we know the importance of preparing students for change. Our transition program helps them to understand what to expect as they progress from kindergarten to school, between year levels and from primary to secondary school.

To familiarise themselves with the school community, we encourage all our prospective Preps to attend a transition program towards the end of the year prior to starting school. This allows new students to experience the classroom and meet their teachers and peers. Once at school, our Preps enjoy their own small community with a separate building and play area, and an older buddy to ease their transition into the larger school community.

The transition process continues at each year level as students move through the school. We coordinate with local secondary schools to help our Grade 6 students prepare for the next stage of their education.

Once your child is enrolled at Brighton Primary they are encouraged to join us for our Prep Transition program where future Preps join us for two mornings in Novmeber and then one afternoon in December for our Orientation day. 

Here are the dates for our 2021 to 2022 sessions for the whole school. 

  • Wednesday 17th November: Transition session #1 9:15 am – 10:30am
  • Wednesday 24th November: Transition session #2 9:15 am – 10:30am
  • Tuesday 7th December: Orientation Afternoon 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
