Starting school is an exciting time for both parents and children. Here at St Francis, our Prep transition is designed to help welcome children into our St Francis of Assisi Community and settle into school life.
Each year, our up and coming Prep students attend school for two separate, one hour Orientation Sessions. This gives the children the opportunity to meet their teacher and classmates, and familiarise themselves with their classroom. This ensures that children find their feet with their future Prep classroom setting before the school year begins.
Once the school year officially commences, our Prep students attend school until 12:30 pm for the first week. This eases the children into what can be quite a long school day. Our Prep students do not attend school for the first five Wednesdays of the first term. During this time, our Prep teachers conduct individual assessment-based interviews with students to inform instruction. This assessment ensures that teachers can best cater to the individual learning needs of the children in their class.
