Important Dates

At Lower Plenty Primary School we have an extensive Prep Transition Program, for all children commencing Primary School the following year. Helping to make the significant transition from a home, preschool or day care setting to Prep as smooth as possible for children and their parents is of paramount importance to us.

The transition to school marks a time of great excitement, and sometimes stress, for children and their families. Participation in a transition program supports a positive start to school and also promotes children’s mental health and wellbeing, social and academic success. Transition programs aim to minimise children’s experience of adjustment difficulties and highlights the importance of working and building positive relationships with families.

Week 1: Discover our Foundation Classroom – Tuesday 25th October – 8:30 to 9:15

Our 2022 Foundation students will enjoy working within the classroom and meeting their Foundation teacher.  Activities may include stories, hands on literacy and numeracy activities, songs and games. Parents are welcome to stay and meet the Principal, ask questions and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in the staffroom.

A Word From Our Parents

{

Lower Plenty has taught my son not only about academics but also so much about himself. The school model allows him to explore his thoughts and ideas– through both successes and failures – pushing him beyond his own preset boundaries. The teachers celebrate his successes and steadfastly stand by his side with support when it is needed. It’s a wonderful environment to grow in.
