Prep 2024 Orientation

To ensure that our prep students' transition from home to school will be as smooth and as pleasant as possible, Sunbury West Primary School offers our new preps an orientation program.


The program consists of 3 sessions where the children come for an hour and do simple 'play activities'. These activities assist the children to develop familiarity with the school environment and help to settle day one nerves when the big day finally arrives. If possible we would like children to attend all three sessions.
