Prep Transition Program
At Mt Eliza Primary School we are dedicated to providing a smooth transition for your child as they begin Prep. We offer many opportunities before your child commences Prep to engage with our school community.
If you have enrolled your child at Mt Eliza Primary School you will receive information about our Prep Transition program in Term 3. Your child will receive an invitation to attend 3 x one-hour sessions during October-November.
Our Prep transition program is an opportunity for your child to experience Prep and familiarise themselves with our school. Our teachers will interact and support your child through a variety of fun and engaging activities.
In December your child will attend a whole school “Up day” where they will find out their new teacher and meet future classmates. We have a Prep information session to welcome our families, introduce our Prep teachers and explain the routines and what to expect as your child begins Prep.
At Mt Eliza Primary School we continue to provide opportunities for families to build connections with our school. Our PTA fundraising committee organise many social events throughout the year.

PTA have once again organised a Mother’s Day Stall for the school. The children will have rostered times to visit the stall to choose a gift/s for Mums, Grandmas and special friends. There will be beautiful gifts for sale from $0.50 – $15.00. All gifts are wrapped by volunteer wrapping helpers. You will be notified which day your child will be visiting the stall closer to the time. To make it easier for your child, please have them bring their money in a purse, wallet or snap lock bag with their name written on it. Please also send a plastic or reusable shopping bag to carry their purchase home in. NB – If your child is away on their stall day, forget their money or they want to buy extra gifts the stall will be open at recess on Thursday to do so.
