Term 4:

Our Belle Vue Bumble Bees’ Orientation Program begins for enrolled 2025 Prep students.

In these sessions, your child will participate in primary school life. During one of the first sessions, they are greeted by the Prep teachers for 2025 and receive a showbag of school “goodies”. Your child will complete part-day and full day sessions.

One of the most valued parts of our program is our Grade 5/Prep Buddies Program. Your child is allocated their Grade 5 buddy, who remains in that relationship with them in Prep and Grade 1. Our Prep students develop a supportive and comfortable relationship with their Buddy which can be maintained over the next two years.

Our Bumble Bees program will be held on the following dates:

#1 Thursday November 21 (2.15pm – 3pm)
#2 Wednesday November 27 (9.00am – 10.00am)
#3 Monday December 2 (9am – 10.30am)
#4 Tuesday December 10 (Full Day)

We look forward to meeting you and your child, supporting your family through the transition from kinder to Foundation and welcoming you to the Belle Vue Primary School community.
