Transition Information

Foundation Information

Is your child “Flying” from Kinder in 2023 into Foundation in 2024?

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 Transition Program consists of 4 MINI sessions which are short, sharp and will give you a taste of what to expect at St Mary’s College. We invite 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!
