Dear Parent/Guardians,


Welcome to the Werribee Primary School community.  We would like to extend a warm welcome and we hope your connection with our school is a long and happy one. As part of your child’s transition into Foundation (Prep) we have organised the following:

2018 Foundation Parent Transition Meetings

During the first four of your child’s transition sessions, the school will be providing an opportunity for you to meet in the gymnasium with staff to find out more about how to help and support your child’s learning. Transition is an important part of your child developing independence when starting school. 


During the student transition session times, once your child has settled in the classroom, we encourage you to leave promptly and to take advantage of the parent information sessions being held in the gym.  


We will be covering areas such as:

  • Helping at home with maths, reading and writing
  • Social skills and developing friendships
  • Getting ready for school


We would love to see all of our 2018 Foundation Year parents at these sessions. It is a great opportunity to meet other parents and to hear about the ways you can help your child with their learning.


Venue:  Gymnasium

  • Session 1 -   24 August: Parents and school partnerships – making connections with the school.
  • Session 2 – 13 September: Numeracy – how to help at home
  • Session 3 – 19 October: Literacy – tips for reading/writing when working with your child at home.
  • Session 4 –  16 November: Developing the Whole Child


We look forward to meeting you and your child and sharing in this important and exciting start to your child’s schooling.


Yours sincerely,


David Quinn
