Transition program for Reception students
To make the move from kindergarten to school an enjoyable one, we offer new students the opportunity to visit the school through a structured transition program. These visits occur over three weeks. This provides opportunity for new children to become accustomed to the classroom and playground, and will enable parents to learn more about our school.
There will also be opportunity for students to come and visit the classroom again on the last Thursday prior to the start of the new school year.
The transition visits will be hosted by our Reception teachers, Mrs. Fiona Knott and Mrs. Carolyn Sheehy.

While it is not expected, some children like to wear school uniform during their transition visits.

Please feel welcome to come into the school and visit the uniform shop at these times.
