Transition Information

Year 7 Information Video

It would have been lovely to have been able to be together in person for the Year 7 Information evening but COVID-19 has made for a very unpredictable year!

We have put together a video that we hope will answer many of the questions you have for your child’s transition to Year 7. The video welcomes new families, explains some of the school’s activities and processes and talks about a typical day in the life of a Year 7 student.

We are very much looking forward to the Orientation day on Tuesday 7 December, when all of the Year 7 students will be together to get to know each other and to experience life at St Mary’s College.

Foundation Transition Information

Is your child “Flying from Kinder in 2021 into Foundation in 2022?

At St Mary’s College, we believe the child’s journey into Foundation begins with building relationships with students and their families by inviting them to participate in our Transition Program ‘Flying into Foundation’.


Our upcoming MINI sessions are short, sharp and will give you a taste of what to expect at St Mary’s College. We are inviting ALL families (whether you are enrolled or prospective) to attend these sessions.

In previous years, our mini sessions have been extremely successful. Children were able to come in and see the different areas of our wonderful College including the Foundation classrooms, the Multipurpose Hall and the Library. It is a fantastic opportunity for parents to ask questions, meet the staff and see the College. In turn, it allows the children to experience exposure to school life and builds confidence, a feeling of safety and connectedness.

We hope to see you there!

Details of our Transition Program follow:
