Transition to school

Transition is a gradual and ongoing process, which enables continuity of children’s learning from home to preschool to school in a caring, supportive and challenging way.

Roxby Downs Area School and Roxby Downs Kindergarten are committed to providing a school visiting program that is a smooth process from one place of learning to another for children.

This process will cater for the individual needs of both parents and children, providing an introduction to and orientation of the school in all aspects of the staff, buildings, yard and classroom expectations.

The school orientation program commences in Term 4, prior to children starting and are presently held on a Tuesday. They allow children to gradually experience a full day of learning, whilst familiarising themselves with the locality of their classroom and facilities like the school canteen and library.
