Foundation Transition Program

At Fairfield Primary School, the aim of our Transition Program is to familiarise children with the school, facilities, some of the teachers, and future classmates through formal and informal activities. We recognise that starting school is a big step for children and our five-week program aims to provide assurance and excitement about the journey that lies ahead.


Our transition program runs from the end of October through November and involves:


Five Orientation Sessions

  • For the purpose of our transition program, we place children into groups. Please note, this grouping is not your child’s class for when they commence school; it is for the transition program only.
  • Thursday 27 October and Thursday 3, 10, 17, & 24 November


Parent Information Session (Online via Zoom)

  • Wednesday 26 October, from 4:30 – 5:30pm


Meet Your Teacher Session

  • Friday 9 December, from 9.30 – 10.30am


We believe that our Foundation Transition Program is highly successful and positive, helping children (and their parents) to feel more confident about joining the Fairfield Primary School community.
