Prep Enrolment and Transition

Choosing your child’s first school is one of the most important decisions you will make. At Timbarra P-9 College we offer a gentle paced yet stimulating series of school transition activities for your child and your family. This enables both you and your child to become familiar with our school environment and begin to know some of our students, staff and school procedures.

We offer individual tours for parents/caregivers to see our classes in operation. Please call our friendly office staff to book a tour (9704-2744). We recommend early enrolement for prep 2018 to secure placement & access our highly successful transition program during Term 3 and 4 2017.


Prep 2018:

2017- Term 3: Story Telling Sessions / School Readiness Information Sessions

Your child is invited to attend a storytelling session with a Prep teacher in the Prep Learning Neighbourhood. These sessions offer great opportunities for your child to come and enjoy time at school with our current prep children and become accustomed to our school environment.

Whilst your child is attending the storytelling information sessions, parents are also invited to attend ‘school readiness information sessions.’ Here you will be presented with information on how to best prepare your child’s academic, social and emotional needs for school.

Please see the attached timetable for times and dates for these sessions. No bookings are required.


2017- Term 4: Compulsory Transition Sessions

During Term 4, Timbarra P-9 College offers 5 transitions sessions.

These 5 sessions offer the best opportunity for us to get to know your child and it is also the best way for your child to become familiar, confident and happy with beginning their school journey.
