Reception Transition

Flagstaff Hill Primary School maintains a strong sense of community through partnerships with our two neighbouring kindergartens. We also welcome students from many other kindergartens in our area. We believe that these partnerships play a large part in the effectiveness of our transition program. A positive transition from kindergarten to school is integral in establishing the path for a successful first year at school.

In South Australia:

Children who turn five years of age before 1 May 2020 will be eligible to start school in Term 1 2020.

Children who turn five after 1 May 2020 will start in Term 1 2021.


Current Transition Program for 2021

Our transition schedule for children starting school in 2022 will participate in three orientation visits during November 2021.

Term 127 Jan to 9 April31 Jan to 14 April
Term 227 April to 2 July2 May to 8 July
Term 319 July to 24 Sept25 July to 30 Sept
Term 411 Oct to 10 Dec17 Oct to 16 Dec

Children who attend our two local Kindergartens, Flagstaff Hill and Flagstaff Oval, often have the chance to visit the school to enjoy our Library or play spaces, or to take part in special events such as Book Week or Sports Day.
