Transition to School

Transition for Pre-enrolled students

Our transition policy below outlines the steps and activities we will have in place for children turning five during the year and starting school as New Entrants, as well as for children starting during the year from other schools.  The three main transition activities for new five year olds include:

  • Invitation to our Four Year Old Progamme
  • Visit to the child's early child care centre and talk with their teacher
  • Two school visits

For children who are pre-enrolled, we will contact you close to the time of your child starting school to organise early child care centre and school visits. 


Four Year Old Programme

Our four year old programme in 2014 will run every Wednesday from 1:40pm to 2:400pm
Children who are pre-enrolled and are four years of age are invited to join our newest Year One children for one hour of activities. 
Meet us in Kowhai in Koru hub (the yellow carpet area as you go in the entrance of Koru).  Meet the teachers and other children. Become familiar with our school environment and equipment.  Make new friends!
