Transition To School For Nearly Five Year Olds

Once your child is four and a half and enrolled at St Joseph’s they are able to attend our transition to school programme.  Contact the office to organise a time for this visit.  This is an opportunity for you and your child to get to know our school.  It is a great way for your child to become confident, get to know others who will be in their class and learn class routines.

Mrs Vicki Neustroski is our new entrant teacher.  She will encourage your child to join in with activities as they become settled.  We encourage you to bring their school bag too so they can begin the routine of packing and unpacking their book bag.  You  will get to know other parents and can ask questions about our school at any time during these visits.
