2023 Prep Transition Program

At Murrumbeena Primary School we run an extensive transition program to help support both parents and students get ready for their first year of school.


Our Parent Information Evening will be held on Tuesday 29th November, from 6.30pm - 7.30pm in the hall. The parent information session will provide our new prep parents with an overview of the school curriculum as well as general information about teaching and learning at Murumbeena Primary School. 


To ensure a smooth start to school life, we provide a comprehensive 4-session transition program for all enrolled future prep students during term 4. 


The aim of these sessions is to provide an opportunity for our future preps to visit the school, become familiar with their new environment, get to know their future classmates as well as many of the staff, and start to feel a part of the school community. 


Our 2023 Prep Transtion Program commences in Term 4.
