Stepping Stones Transition Program

Parents would be aware that last year we introduced a new transition program called Stepping Stones. The program was aimed at children enrolled for Prep at Norris Bank in 2017. The program has been very successful with Sophie Dimou, our prep teacher, full of praise for how settled and well prepared for school her new students are! We have had some wonderful feedback from parents regarding the program and thought we’d share it with the community-

“The Stepping Stones program is an amazing opportunity not offered at all schools but it should be. Our daughter met most pf her classmates before school started and as a result has settled in with ease and very little issue.” C & L Kantidakis
“I think the Stepping Stones Program was a fantastic idea! It was good for the children to settle better into the school environment, even to communicate with the other children and getting to know them prior to commencing the school year.”
“We enrolled out child into the Stepping Stones program in 2016. We noticed positive and significant changes from the time our child began the program Changes such as confidence, communication, interaction and an easy transition into school of which we believe is a major transition in life. They were taught structure, independence and routine, a factor most children struggle with in shorter transition periods. I would recommend the Stepping Stones program to any parent considering Norris bank Primary in 2018.” Dalianis Family

STEAM at Norris Bank

Some of the students in Year 4/5/6 have been participating in a STEAM program at Norris Bank.

STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses

  • Science,
  • Technology,
  • Engineering,
  • Arts and
  • Mathematics

as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking. The desired outcome is students who take measured risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through a creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!
