Transition to St Albert’s

At St Albert’s we foster close relationships with our local kindergarten, coming to know each child prior to commencing school.

Our Reception teachers and class visit the Loxton Preschool in the first few weeks of each term and the preschool children also visit St Albert’s each term.

All new children who are starting school the following term are invited to attend four transition visits as a lead up to beginning school.

The first visit consists of a 2 ½ hour session, the length of the session then gradually increases to allow the children to eventually experience the reality of attending school for a full day.

Parents are invited to share morning tea with other parents from the Reception class and members of the school community on the mornings of transition visits.

Transition to Secondary School

St Francis of Assisi College, Renmark offers a Catholic secondary pathway for Years 7 to 12.

The College provides a daily bus service for students to safely travel between Loxton and the College.

St Francis of Assisi College has a focus on supported transition experiences that ensure every student will have the best possible start to secondary school.

The College runs a series of transition days for students starting in Year 7.  Enrolled students are invited to attend the scheduled transition days, and the invitation is extended to families who are still considering their child’s secondary education pathway.

Learn more about St Francis of Assisi College, including bus and transition options on the College website.
