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.
2022 Foundation 'Launch Into Learning' Transition Sessions
The following sessions are for all children enrolled in Foundation for 2022. These sessions will allow your child to participate in a number of aspects of primary school life at Syndal South Primary School, as well giving parents an introduction into our community.
Session 1 (online): Wednesday 25th August - 2.15 - 3.15pm
Online Session Focus: Book Week
Via Webex - contact the office for details
Session 2 (online): Wednesday 8th September - 2.15 - 3.15pm
Classroom Focus: Mini Mathematicians
Session 3 (online): Wednesday 27th October - 2.15 - 3.15pm

Session 4 re-scheduled: Wednesday 17th November
Time: Parents select times in a Google Form
Classroom Focus: Classroom Experience
Google Form: Complete by 5th November. Parents will be emailed their child's allocated session in the following week. The child will come onsite for 45 minutes in a small group to complete an activity with the teacher, see the classroom and meet some new friends. This transition session will make up for lost time and give them an opportunity to experience life in the classroom, chat with peers and get to know teachers. Parents fill out the google form and select a few times that would best fit their schedule. In the Google form parents can also let the school know who their child's friends are.
Meet, Mingle and Nibble: Monday 6th December - 5.30 - 7pm
Come along, find out their child's class, receive the transition pack and hear some information on starting school. Stay for a nibble to meet other families.
