Meet the Prep Teachers

Prep Transition 

The transition to primary school from a home and kinder environment can be a bit daunting to some children.

To make the transition easier, Healesville Primary School offers:

  • "Bridges to Prep" transition activities specially targeted for the needs of students coming into Prep. Dates and details of transition activities are listed below or can be obtained from the school office 
  • Buddies Program

Bridges to Prep

Our Bridges to Prep program is a key part of our transition into school life. It is very important that each child’s introduction into school is an enjoyable and positive experience. We do this by easing them in gently to the new environment, and by allowing them to familiarise themselves with our staff and different classrooms and their new surroundings. We encourage them to make a friend, so that they will have a familiar face when the new school year begins. Through the Bridges program, children experience a variety of activities such as Literacy and Numeracy, Music, Physical Education and Art.
