Transition 2018/2019

TRANSITION 2018/2019

The Foundation (Prep) Transition Program is designed to make the move from Preschool to Primary School as seamless as possible. At the beginning of the school year students undertake a range of engaging activities similar to those at Kindergarten. This includes singing and dancing, developmental play, inquiry activities, as well as formal learning including numeracy and literacy.

The Foundation classrooms are designed to incorporate aspects of the Kindergarten environment, including a shop, kitchen, dress up area and post shop. TVPS endeavours to deliver best practice teaching methods, empowering student learning through programs that encourage our students to become self-motivated, successful and active global citizens.

We offer a comprehensive range of activities and opportunities for families and children to get to know our school. Please see the below links for more information about upcoming events.
