Prep Transition

A smooth transition for your family

Enrolments for 2022 are now open at OLA!


Prep Transition 2022

At OLA we aim to support parents and children in making a smooth transition to school life. For students to begin school in 2022 they must be 5 years of age by the 30th April 2022.


Our comprehensive transition process includes the following steps:


School Tours 

You are welcome to tour the school - please indicate a day and time that works well for your family by contacting the office on (03) 9584 9488 or by completing the following form.  Please refer to the school website for a virtual school tour and you are welcome to contact the school for an additional video from the Principal about OLA.

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.  Please refer to the school website for a virtual school tour and you are welcome to contact

the school for an additional video from the Principal about OLA.



First round and second round letters of offer for Prep 2022 will be emailed in May 2021.  Subsequent offers will be made on a regular basis.



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


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 2021 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 2022 Class Teacher

The final piece of our Prep transition process is an orientation morning for students in their classroom for 2022 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.

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.
