It was a joy to welcome our 2017 Preps last week as they started their transition program. This is always an exciting time for families as they begin their child's school journey and it is a special time for the school community as we meet new children, parents and grandparents. For some parents and carers this is their first experience of school since they were a child and for others they may be well familiar with life at IEPS.

The transition program intends to provide a variety of school experiences for our 2017 preps and I thank our 2016 Prep teachers and our specialist teachers for preparing them well for their start to school. Thanks also to our current Prep parents who will be providing a special welcome to our new parents at the children's final transition session on the 23rd November so that they can share their wisdom as a Prep parent.
