Prep Transition 2022

Transition into Primary School

Our Foundation Transition Program aims to provide your child with many opportunities to learn about our school and begin settling in.

Our goal is to have students feel safe, happy and excited about starting their school life at Karinigal Primary School.

It is our hope that each child has a happy, positive and satisfying beginning to the great adventure of life at school. Our supportive and caring transition program focuses on building relationships between your child, teacher and family. We aim to facilitate smooth transition between Pre-school and Foundation through our school tours and transition sessions.
