Foundation Information & Transition Sessions

Transition Sessions
At Syndal South we recognise the transition from Kindergarten to school can be both exciting and daunting for parents and students alike. And as happy and confident children is an important priority for us at Syndal South, we have a variety of information and transition sessions aimed at assisting a smooth transition to school.

  • An Instagram page (Future_Stars_At_Syndal_South) to communicate information about transition sessions and give parents and children a glimpse into the classroom.
  • A parent evening in May held to discuss the Foundation transition process and expectations for the following year.  
  • All incoming Foundation students receive a picture story about what to expect on their first day of school and suggested holiday activities to help prepare them for their new school life. 
  • All incoming families will receive a welcome pack with an information booklet as well as an individual interview and testing time before students start the year.
  • Tears and Cheers - a morning tea for parents will be provided on the first day of school.
  • A parent information evening held early in Term 1 to discuss the school life and expectations for a Foundation student as well as question time to answer any new queries.
