Prep Transition

At St. John Vianney’s we aim to create an atmosphere in which children feel secure and confident to explore and develop their learning.


We begin by contacting the kindergartens for a visit to meet your child and discuss with the educators any needs and recommendations for your child.  


We then invite the children to attend two orientation days in November/December. 


We also have a WELCOME TO PREP information night towards the end of the year, where we discuss all the things you will need to know before school starts.  


In January, we open the school for a Prep Playdate to meet other families and begin the connection process.  


The Prep children attend school 4 days a week for the first month, having Wednesdays off to rest and recover from the busy life that is school!  During one of those Wednesdays, we will ask you to book a 30 minute session for your child for a one on one interview with the teacher.


This is an exciting time and we look forward to sharing your child’s learning journey with you.

Prep Transition


The uniform at SJV consists of both Summer and Winter versions. The children are expected to wear the correct school uniform at all times. 


All uniform items are  purchased onsite at our school through the uniform shop, run by parent volunteers. 


Order forms are available on this page and can either be emailed or handed to our school office.


Before & After School Care - TheirCare

Our school has partnered with an independent provider called TheirCare to provide exceptional Outside School Hours Care services for our school community.

The program is available for all children at St John Vianney's Primary School from 7:00am until 8:40am in the morning and from 3:30pm until 6:00pm each school day.

During Pupil Free Days the service will operate from 7:00am until 6:00pm.

Families wishing to use this service can visit the TheirCare website:

Families are eligible for a Government Rebate called the Child Care Subsidy which can reduce the cost per session by up to 90%.

More information can be obtained by contacting the school or ringing TheirCare Support Team on 1300 072 410.

TheirCare provides a stimulating and safe environment for all children. During sessions, children develop life-skills, friendships, confidence and creativity through play-based programs.
