2019 Transition Program

School of Cultural Creativity Transition Program 2018

Beginning school is an important milestone for every child and their families, and we aim to make it as smooth as possible for all involved.

The transition program allows your child to immerse themselves in our school’s unique learning environment, and experience firsthand the creativity, democracy, and learning and social benefits of our school.

The purpose of the transition program is to:

  • assist students to develop their sense of belonging in our unique learning environment
  • offer students opportunities to participate in school activites
  • provide students, educators and parents with opportunities to build new relationships and develop friendships, and
  • provide information and support to parents and families.

The transition program will include:

  • an introduction to inquiry-based learning
  • engaging with our community
  • an introduction to the democratic processes that govern our school
  • students making connections between their creative capacities and formal learning, and
  • engaging with the ecology of their environment.

Transition Calendar

We’ll get together from time to time during term 3 for some colab activities… stay posted.

The formal 2018-2019 transition program will run every Friday afternoon throughout term 4, 2018, from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

During your first transition session, parents are invited to come along and collect forms and required information for the 2019 school year, and speak with your child’s educators about any concerns or ideas you may have. This is also an opportunity to engage with other parents and families.

More information will be given to you a little closer to the time.
