Years 1 - 6 transition

Transition programs play an important role when students change year levels, as well as when new students enrol at our school.

In term 3 each year, parents and carers are invited to meet with the principal to provide information that the school needs to consider for a child’s class placement. This information, together with the teachers' professional knowledge and student-generated friendship lists, inform our class placement process.


Teachers at Westgarth support students with a 'within school' transition program in term 4 each year - and provide the following year's teacher/s with a substantial handover to ensure all students continue to be happy and successful.
