Our Prep Transition process aims to give families multiple opportunities to visit the school and for us as a school to get to know our future Prep students.
The below information details some of the events which will be scheduled later in the year.
This plan however, is subject to COVID 19 circumstances and the advice from Qld Education and Health services. If there are any changes, we will be sure to communicate this to families and ECEC centres.
All in-catchment, enrolled Prep students are invited to attend one of the transition days. The transition day gives the children the opportunity to work and play in a Prep classroom. While the children are in the classrooms, parents will hear from school support staff around Prep Readiness and how you can prepare your child for commencing their year at Prep.
Helen our enrolments officer will email you confirmation of the transition day you are invited to attend. Children will only attend one transition day.
To be included in these transition days, enrolment forms must be in to Helen by the nominated due date.
All Prep enrolments will have an opportunity to meet with a School Leadership Team Member and Prep Teacher. Part of this interview process includes the completion of a screener assessment and an opportunity for parents to share specific interests of their child.
This 20-30minute interview allows the school the opportunity to get to know each individual student and family
Our Enrolment Officer Helen James will contact you prior to the end of Term 3 to confirm your Interview time.
We offer two interview options:
On-site interviews at Sherwood State School
At your child's Early Childhood Educational Centre – Centres TBC.
Prep Play Observations (TBC)
Seeing the children in their current kindy classroom, engaging with their teachers and classmates in a play based setting is a valuable opportunity for our Prep teachers and staff.
All 2021 Prep children, both in catchment and confirmed out of catchment placements, as well as their parents, are to attend the Orientation Week. Students will spend time with their future class teacher and teacher aide in their classroom.
