It is important that parents provide all information that will assist us to know your child and their needs. This assists us in class placements and any supports that may be required.
Our Prep Teachers work closely with Bardon Kindy and other local Pre-school centres to ensure that we have a smooth transition to our school. Each year the Prep teachers organise a Prep Experience morning for our new enrolments. In addition, they visit the local centres to observe students and talk with the centre Directors and teachers. Bardon Kindy also visits Bardon State School so that we can align programming to ensure students readiness for their new school environment.
Bardon Kindy is also involved in our annual Under 8’s day.
Our Active Learning Team works closely with personnel from The Gap State High School and other local High Schools to promote smooth transitions between the Primary and High School settings. All Year 5 and 6 students also have the opportunity to participate in a High School Experience day each year.
Students with individual support needs may have additional visits to a new setting, visits from support personnel to BSS or a range of other supports to ensure a smooth transition.
