Transition Program : Bright Beginnings

Starting school is one of the most significant steps in a young child’s life. The successful experiences in the early years of schooling are vital for their progress through school and their future success. We warmly welcome you to Weeden Heights PS and wish you and your children a happy and rewarding time as part of our school community.

Weeden Heights PS is a caring school where parents, teachers and students proudly work together to ensure the best possible start and future for all.

Supporting pre-schoolers to make a smooth transition to Weeden Heights Primary is of paramount importance to us. To this end we offer a range of options.

Preschool children are encouraged to participate in our exciting Prep Transition Program. There are regular sessions held at school. While children are involved in classroom activities parents have the opportunity to attend an information session conducted by specialist presenters along with being able to chat with other parents.

Special evening events including storytelling nights together with Open Days are held throughout the year to assist families in familiarising themselves with the school and our community. These are advertised well in advance and details can be found on the Prep Transition timetable.


Older Students Transferring to our School

For students transferring to Weeden Heights from other schools, we encourage families to visit our school and get to know us and their new environment. We provide the opportunity for students to spend some time in class to establish relationships with their peers and their new teacher. We also assign class buddies to ensure a smooth and happy transition to their new school.

We extend a warm welcome to you and we look forward to meeting you and your child.

Transition Dates

School Visits

Now that you are considering Primary School for your Pre-school child, you are invited to participate in our transition sessions. While your child is attending these sessions, we invite you to hear our ‘Special Guest Speakers’ presenting to new parents on a variety of topics including school readiness, school life and our programs while enjoying some refreshments and having a chat with other parents.

If any of these “Come and Try” times do not suit you, please phone the office to and we will arrange other opportunities for your child to experience our school on a more suitable time on another day.
