Kinder to Foundation (Prep)
Children that reach the age of five on or before April 30th may begin school in January of that year.
We personalise a transition program for your child to ensure the move from Kinder to School is as smooth as possible. We encourage connections between the school and our local kinders, with students visiting kinders and we invite kinders to come and try sessions at Bundy.
We also have scheduled transition sessions in term 4 for students this allows students to become more familiar with the new environment and begins their schooling positively.
In the beginning of Term 1, Foundation students have a rest day on Wednesday, this gives them the opportunity to have a break and process all the new information and experiences they are adapting to.
Enrolment forms are available here
After enrolment Foundation students receive a welcome including uniform, buddy bear, book bag and hat, setting them up for move.
