Transition Day - 27th November

Our Transition Day is scheduled for Friday, 27 November 2020 (Week 8). Continuing students and new students commencing 2021 from Prep – Year 6 will join us for this day. We will also welcome our new and returning teaching staff for 2021. All new and current students will be in their allocated learning areas for 2021, where they will spend the day engaged in learning and teaching activities with their 2021 teacher/s.

Please note the arrangements for Transition Day as below:

On arrival at school, all students are to place their bags outside the classroom of their 2021 learning area prior to going to normal before school supervision/play areas.

  • When the bell rings at 8:45am, all students will move directly to 2021 learning areas and commence their day with their 2021 Home Group Teacher.
  • Staff for 2021 will be in the relevant learning area at the commencement of the day to support a smooth transition and to meet students.
  • Students will line up in their allocated 2021 Home Groups and gather with their Home Group teacher for 2021 at the commencement of the day outside their learning areas.

Learning areas for 2021 are as below:

    • Year 2 will move to the lower level of Block C (current year 4 Learning Area)
    • Year 4 will move to upper level of Block R (Lighthouse Learning Area and current year 5/6 Learning Area)
    • Year 5/6 will move to the upper level of Block B (current year 2 Learning Area)
    • All other year level classrooms remain unchanged and have been allocated to the same learning areas in 2021.

  • Students will attend playground areas during breaks as they align to their 2021 year level.
  • Current Year 6 students will spend the day with our specialist teaching team including Mrs Gibbs and Mrs Bennett. On arrival at school, year 6 students are asked to place their bags on the port racks outside of the O’Dea Centre. At the start of day, they will line up in their usual assembly area in the O’Dea Centre.

Notification of Home Groups/Teachers for 2021

A letter outlining your child’s Home Group and Teacher will be sent home with each student on Wednesday, 25 November 2020. Please check your child’s bag for this information.

Teachers will share Home Group information with the students prior to leaving school on Wednesday. Students will also be advised which classroom in the learning area will be their HG classroom for 2021 in preparation for Transition Day on Friday, 27 November 2020.
