Karoo Primary School prides itself on its Transition and Orientation program. Sessions are tailored for preschool children with an emphasis on introducing the school environment to them.

 

Pre-school children sessions
We will be running a series of transition sessions during Terms 3 and 4 giving the children a taste of school life. Sessions run as follows:

Story Time
Through interactive storytelling and play, Prep teachers present stories and activities which promote the development of language and literacy skills and foster a love of reading.
