Prep Transition

A smooth transition for your family

Enrolments are always open at OLA!


Prep Transition 2024

At OLA we aim to support parents and children in making a smooth transition to school life. For students to begin school in 2024 they must be 5 years of age by the 30th April 2024.


Our comprehensive transition process includes the following steps:


School Tours 

Please select a day and time that suits you and your family.  Tours are always welcome outside of these hours, so please contact the office at your earliest convenience should you be unable to make one of these times.

Letters of Offer for Prep 2024 will be emailed to families at the end of each month leading up to the June interviews.



Parents and prospective students will meet with the Principal and members of the Leadership Team for a short interview in early June. 


Kindergarten Visit

A member of our Wellbeing Team will visit students at kindergarten for an opportunity to interact with them in an environment in which they feel safe and comfortable. We will also provide a Social Story for each kindergarten and each child that explains and celebrates the important parts of starting Prep.


Orientation Mornings

In November 2023 we will begin our orientation sessions when students have the opportunity to visit OLA, meet other students and some of the teachers who will be teaching them once they begin school.


Information Evenings and Social Events

We invite parents to attend different information sessions including, ‘Starting School: How your family can THRIVE (not just survive!)’ with Carley McGauran. 

We also host a coffee morning at a local cafe as well as a wine and cheese night for our parents to mingle and meet each other.  During this time we provide opportunities for parents to ask questions.


Orientation Morning with 2024 Class Teacher

The final piece of our Prep transition process is an orientation morning for students in their classroom for 2024 with their teacher.  They also get to meet their Grade 6 buddies at this time.


Play in the Park

During the orientation time, members of the OLA Parents and Friends Association arrange an informal play date at the local park so that both children and parents can connect, support each other and plan to meet up again before starting school.  We also provide contact lists for Prep families so that you can connect with each other over the summer holidays and set your child up for success.

Please be in touch with any questions that you may have. All the very best as you make this important decision of primary school education for your family.
