There are many transitions for students in Primary School.
At Wallan Primary School we have a strong transition program to support all students.

Transition Between Year Levels
At the end of the year we begin a staggered transition process to support students in their move up into the next year level. We begin with conversations, visits to classrooms and interactions with current year level teachers. Students also share with their younger peers what similarities and differences they will notice in the following year.
Students who need extra support during the transition process will work closely with their current teacher and our wellbeing team and their new teacher to make the transition as smooth as possible.
Transition From Another School
When students transfer from another school we also ensure that we have a process in place to support the student and family. We offer school tours, time to meet with our wellbeing team and time to meet with your new class teacher.
Transition from Year 6 to Secondary School
Our Year 6 transition coordinator follows the Department of Education Primary to Secondary transition timeline each year. Wallan Primary School engages with various secondary schools to ensure that Year 5 and 6 students and their families begin to look at the prospects moving into Year 7. Secondary schools will offer information nights and/or tours at their venue. We also encourage schools to visit our students at Wallan to get to know them and share tips on secondary school life.
Orientation Day 2023
On the 12th December all Year 6 students will visit their secondary school as part of a statewide Orientation Day. More information around this day will follow from your allocated secondary school later in the year.
Students who need extra support during the transition process will work closely with their current teacher and our wellbeing team as well as the secondary college to make the transition as smooth as possible.
