Foundation Transition @ Blackburn Lake Primary School
Starting school is a major milestone for your child and your family. At Blackburn Lake Primary School we understand that although an exciting time, it can be an emotional time and needs gentle consideration and careful preparation.
At Blackburn Lake Primary School, we want to help make the transition to primary school and our school community a smooth and positive experience for your child and your family.
We understand that the kind of experiences children have as they become familiar with their new surroundings, routines and procedures can affect their transition to school. At Blackburn Lake Primary School, through our transition program we aim to build collaborative partnerships between families, early years’ educators and school staff in order to support your child with their transition to our school.
