Three transition sessions for children starting Foundation (Prep) at CNPS are held in November/December, giving children an opportunity to become familiar with the school so that they can begin with confidence and a positive outlook.
Visits will consist of students being involved in familiarisation tours of the school, activities in classrooms and building friendships with other students. Every Foundation student starting school at CNPS, will be assigned a student from the next year’s Grade 6, known as a ‘buddy’ who can assist them if needed in the school yard for the first few weeks of school. Foundation students will meet their buddies in the third session of the transition program.
A Parent information session will be held on the 2nd visit so that parents can be informed about the school’s programs and procedures, and an opportunity will be provided for questions. All parents will be given a ‘Beginning School at Carlton North PS’ pack, which contains information relevant to the first few weeks of school.
The dates for 2019 Foundation Transition Sessions are:
Wednesday 20 November (2pm-3pm)
Wednesday 27 November (2pm-3pm)
Wednesday 4 December November (2pm-3pm)
