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 offers so much more than just an excellent education program. When you enrol your child at St Columba's you join the vibrant supportive community. We couldn't be happier at St Columba's."

Parent of Year 2 and 3 Students

We respectfully acknowledge the Boon Wurrung  people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional custodians of the Country on which we learn and play. We pay respect to ongoing living cultures of First Peoples, their ancestors and their Elders; past, present and emerging.
