Our Lady Help of Christians School believes that a positive and comprehensive introduction to school life is imperative to the success of children and parents. For some Prep students, this is their first experience of a school environment and for some parents, the first time they have engaged with a school since they were students themselves.
Our Lady Help of Christians offers the following process of orientation and induction into Prep:
Parent Information Session
At this session in August, parents are introduced to important aspects of Our Lady Help of Christians School, including routines, parental engagement and some information from the teaching staff specifically about Prep, for example, parents are provided with some valuable information about language development and ways they can assist.
Bump Up Day
Students and parents attend the school for a session in November. Both the student and their parent spend time in the Prep area, so that some familiarisation is developed about expectations and the Prep classrooms.
