Starting school is an exciting time for all children and at Amsleigh Park we have a well-structured orientation program that supports each child as they transition from pre-school to primary school.
We are committed to ensuring that all students are well prepared to start primary school and each year we offer our new preps 4 special visits to Amsleigh Park PS.
Following feedback from pre-schools in 2020 our Prep orientation will commence in the final four weeks of the school year. This recognises that children in 4YO kindergarten may become unsettled if their transition to primary school commences too early. After a successful trial in 2020 we are continuing this is 2021 for Preps commencing in 2022. Please see the attached flyer for Prep Transition dates for 2021 sessions commencing on Wednesday 24th November, 2021.
The four visits are designed to gently introduce children to school life and teaching staff. Once children have participated in these sessions they normally feel very comfortable in our school environment and look forward to commencing the following year.
Our caring prep teaching staff are also available to discuss any specific needs your child might have and you should make contact with them to organise a meeting time.
Please contact the office to make an appointment or discuss with our prep teachers at the transition sessions.
We look forward to welcoming our future students and their families to Amsleigh Park Primary School.

“We were in a position to send our son to a private school but decided to look into Amsleigh Park Primary as it was so close to our home. After meeting the principal and teachers and seeing the facilities at the school, it became an obvious choice for us to send him to Amsleigh Park. And it’s a choice we’ve not regretted. Amsleigh Park is a fantastic small community school where students’ differences are readily accepted, and achievements whether academic or otherwise are celebrated. Our son’s teacher is incredibly enthusiastic and genuinely interested in his academic progress and emotional wellbeing. We’d happily recommend the school to any new parents and students.” (Parent of Prep, 2019)
I would definitely recommend Amsleigh Park Primary School as a community-orientated and very friendly school to send your children to. It is fantastic to say goodbye to my children in the morning knowing they will be cared for by a dedicated and caring teacher who knows all of my family on a first name basis.The prep transition program was thorough and friendly making it easy to connect to other new families. Any questions or inquiries I’ve ever had have been quickly and professionally followed up.
(Prep parent 2020)
We have been a parent of 3 children at Amsleigh Park Primary School since 2012 and have another 5 years ahead of us. Since joining the school community we have felt welcome, safe and confident in the education of our children. The staff at Amsleigh Park Primary are honestly so invested in our children and their development and we are so grateful that we choose APPS. The school is very well managed with an excellent Principal in Mr Cormick and Vice Principal in Miss Carr who are always prepare to listen to any concerns we have had. The facilities are outstanding and the school is always looking for ways to improve the grounds for our kids.
One other thing that stands out at APPS is the community support. We are extremely lucky to have a great community who help the school to be what it is. We are indebted to APPS for the growth in our children and look forward to their continued support and community involvement for many years to come.
