Starting school is a very exciting time, for both children and parents. We understand that making the right decision for your child is very important. At Boronia West, we pride ourselves on providing a happy, safe learning environment for all our students. We encourage parents to book in for a personal school tour with our Acting Principal, Jennie Brown. Call and arrange a time- 9762 2510.
OUR TRANSITION PROGRAM
We are very proud of our “Step Into Prep” transition program. This program begins in October and runs for 5 consecutive weeks. During these 2.5 hour sessions in the classroom, pre-schoolers have a great opportunity to get to know the school facilities, play areas, their classroom, school routines, classmates and teachers, including the specialist Art, Music and Sport teachers.
The Pre-Schoolers' Transition Program at Boronia West Primary consists of the following school experience events:
Session 1 - Meg, Mog and Mask-making (My classroom, my school) - Wednesday 18th October from 9:30am to 12 noon
Session 2 - Let's get physical! (Visual Arts) - Tuesday 24th October from 9:30am to 12 noon
Session 3 - What can I make (Performing Arts) - Thursday 2nd November from 9:30am to 12 noon
Session 4 - Sing and dance and have some fun! (Physical Education) Friday 10th November from 9:30am to 12 noon
Session 5 - Teddy bears' picnic (with Year 5/6 buddies) Wednesday 15th November from 9:30am to 12 noon
NOTE: Parent Information Evening will be held on 22nd November from 5:45 to 6:30pm.
In a fun and stimulating environment, we aim to build the children’s confidence and help them develop a sense of belonging. On starting school next year, the Transition Program continues via a carefully structured process enabling our new Preppies to settle into school routines in a relaxed and happy manner, with a growing sense of self confidence and independence. There were NO tears on the first day this year....well perhaps just a few from some sentimental Mums and Dads!
BIG BUDDIES, LITTLE BUDDIES
Our prep and grade 6 buddy program really helps our new students settle in and feel welcome. We love it when the big buddies come to help us in our classroom and they look out for us out in the yard too!
In December, there will be a Foundation Information Evening for parents and each enrolled family will receive a comprehensive Information Booklet. Alternatively you may click here to access the Boronia West Primary School Parent Information Booklet 2017.
To start primary school your child must turn five years of age, or older, by 30 April of the year that they will start school.
