Our prep transition program will be kicking off from November. Newly enrolled students are encouraged to participate in our prep program from 9:30 am to 11:30 am on the following dates:

Friday November 17th 2017

Wednesday November 22nd 2017

This program is an early opportunity for our newest students to experience the beginning of their school journey prior to their commencement in 2018!


What  will happen at the transition sessions? 

Students will spend time during these sessions familiarising themselves with the classroom and other play and learning  spaces. They will begin to build positive relationships with Collingwood College Staff and other students.  

Making the Transition Sessions a Success

  • Arrive at school with sufficient time to say a fond farewell to your child before class begins.
  • Sign in for the transition session at the sign-in table in the canteen, then make your way to the appropriate classroom.
  • Seek assistance promptly from the teacher if transition procedures are causing undue upset for your child.
  • Double -check finishing times for the transition session.
  • Be punctual when collecting your child from the session – a few minutes to you may seem a long time to a child left waiting.  Notify Collingwood College on 9417 6681 if you are unavoidably detained.
  • Make time for your child at the end of the session. Listen BUT don’t ask too many questions.
  • Reinforce codes of behaviour and school procedures.
  • Your positive attitude and supportive guidance will foster in your child confidence in their own ability to negotiate this new experience.
