The transition process from Kindergarten to Foundation is very important and we believe in working together with parents to ensure that students feel confident and well prepared for school. To make the transition process smooth and successful, Dandenong South Primary School staff and the kindergarten teachers arrange learning activities for the kindergarten children to help them become familiar with their new learning environment. This enables the transition program to be smooth and successful. During Term Four, there are three orientation days for children who have enrolled at our school. These orientation days provide opportunities for children to participate in engaging learning experiences. Parents are also invited to attend an information session. At this session, parents will receive an information pack that will assist them with their child’s first year at school.
