Transitioning into Year 1

At Queen Margaret College we know what an important occasion it is for a child and their family, when a child turns 5 and starts school.

We want your family to feel as comfortable and confident as possible, so we invite parents and caregivers to attend a Junior School Transition session to learn about ‘A day in the life’ of a QMC Junior School student. This gives us at Queen Margaret College the opportunity to meet and connect with your family before your child starts school in order to make the transition as easy as possible.

Relationships are key and these Transition sessions give you as parents and caregivers the opportunity to ask any questions or tell us your aspirations for your child. You will also have the chance to share any areas that your child excels in or those where they may need a little extra support so we are best prepared to welcome them.  Starting school is a big life event for a little person and we want this to be as successful as possible for you and your whanau.

To attend our next Transitioning into Year 1 Information Session, please register below.

  • Wednesday 6 March 9.00 – 10.20am

“Our child had a wonderful time at QMC preschool in the past two years. Being part of the QMC community, the preschool was the best start to her education journey. The teachers provided nurturing and fun learning environment that helped my child to build confidence and excitement about learning. Being next door of the QMC junior school made the school transition seamless! The teachers also prepared my child for school by assisting her to develop independent, social, and academic skills. We are so pleased to see her walking into junior school with these skills and a great level of confidence.” (Yuki Wang, July 2023)
