Kindergarten students enrolled at the school are invited to attend our ‘Stepping Up’ transition program that consists of five sessions designed to orientate them with life at Ripponlea. Whilst attendance at these sessions is not compulsory, it is strongly encouraged. ‘Stepping Up’ sessions are conducted in Term 4.
The ‘Stepping Up’ program engages the children in a range of enjoyable play-based activities and includes story-time, craft and singing. These sessions also provide an opportunity for you and your child to meet their teachers.
While the children are busy meeting new friends, parents are invited to attend information sessions that explain how Ripponlea operates, how you can assist your child with their learning and development, and how your family can become involved with the school community.
