Pathways to St Joseph's

From 2014, all children will have a uniform pathway to preschool and school, under the state government’s “Same First Day” initiative.

Transition to St Joseph's Primary School

Transition to school is a continual process that involves orientation to school and also building relationships and being in a safe and settled environment. 

For children who are about to begin Reception, St Joseph's offers a two-day orientation program where children meet their teachers for the following year, their classmates and they get used to class routines and structures.

Children who attend St Joseph's preschool will already be familiar with the school environment.

Our Reception teachers visit the preschools from which our children are enrolling.
