The transition process is designed to make students feel excited about the move to Senior School. They are entering a different phase of education, which is deliberately different to Prep so that students are invigorated by the change. They are, however, leaving familiar surrounds, so we aim to make students and their parents feel that they are part of a welcoming community, well before they start Year 7.
Our Prep students are fortunate that the PFL and KLB curriculum and activities across each and every year group mirror each other, resulting in a huge range of shared experiences with their contemporaries in the other campus.
There are a number of activities and annual events that provide opportunities for Prep students to work together and build relationships, such as combined residential trips, parties, sports competition and joint musical opportunities.
And of course at the end of every year a Whole School Assembly is held. This is where Prep students get a feel for being part of a bigger school and see the Senior Students involved in the Assembly, be it through speeches or performances.
