Transition to Foundation

Do you have a child commencing Foundation in 2022?


Starting school is an exciting time. In the year prior to starting school Wantirna Primary offers a full Transition program to provide Pre-schoolers with a positive introduction to school experiences. Transition to school for new Foundation students is supported by the whole school community with our Foundation Transition coordinator working closely with kindergartens to ensure a smooth transition into primary school.

A buddy system is in place to assist the new Foundations to settle into the school routine in a caring and supportive way.  The children are introduced to their Year 5 buddies during transition activities in Term 4.  The buddies are there to support the Foundation students transition to school by finding friends to play with and generally providing support.  They continue this friendship throughout the year and participate in a number of designated 'buddy' activities.
