Thank you for coming to the Secondary School Transition Information Session

Thank you to Grant and the team for holding our information session for families preparing to transition to secondary school. This information session outlined the process and included visitors from Sunshine Secondary College to provide families with information about their school.  This information might provide support for families to help our children have a safe and exciting transition to secondary school.
