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 one morning per week for three weeks, 9.15am – 10.30am, at school.

Our Prep transition mornings for 2021 Prep students were due to be held on Wednesday 18th and 25th November 2020.  This has been suspended due to the current Victorian government’s advice. 

Our whole school Orientation day is occurring on Tuesday 8th December 2020 for current Prep to Year 6 students.
