Prep Transition Program

Starting school is a big step in a child’s life. We believe a seamless transition from pre-school to prep is important to establish a positive start to school life. For that reason, we have designed a transition program that is spread out across the year. It is a great way for our incoming preps to get to know the school, our teachers and to make new friends before starting their first day of school in 2023.

What our parents & students say

"St Columba's is known as the little school with the big heart and you notice that when you first arrive. Every teacher and every student knows your child by name. They offer bespoke learning experiences for children to enjoy while at school."
