Transition to School Program

St Joseph's Primary School, Bulahdelah, offers a FREE program for children transitioning to their first year of school. We have a series of experiences in Term 4 for children beginning Kindergarten the following year. 

We are part of the Successful Foundations Action Research Project. The project aims to support the implementation of the Early Learning Policy into schools by strengthening classroom practices. This is done by providing a positive play-based transition for early learners to school, helping to establish collaborative relationships between children, families, teachers and the community.

“Through play and carefully developed provocations, Successful Foundations gives children plentiful opportunity to show the infinite ways they express their interests, capabilities, needs, thoughts, feelings and imaginings,” said Kim Moroney, Education Officer (Early Learning) for the Catholic Schools Office.

Successful Foundations is about co-construction – students and teachers are viewed as endowed with strength and trusted to quest together.”
