Templeton Primary School was granted an enrolment restriction by the Department of Education and Training in 2014 due to site capacity issues.
An official department map identifying the designated neighbourhood boundary (DNB) is presented for your clarification.
Our Sick Bay is located near the General Office and run by our First Aid Officer Nicole Cross. Nicole has been at Templeton for 9 years, looking after hundreds of sick and injured students. Please find below some medical forms for download if your child experiences anaphylaxis, asthma or other allergic reactions. There is also a Medical Consent form for administering medication. All of these forms are readily available at the General Office.
The Transition Program at Templeton Primary School has been established over 15 years. Our program is continually evolving, keeping abreast with current practices in early childhood education.
The Transition program, for children moving from Preschool/Childcare to Primary School, is created and designed to include a range of activities that support children and families to become familiar and comfortable with the new environment, the teachers and experiences of school. Our aim is to provide your child with the support needed to ensure a confident beginning and seamless transition into Primary School.
Templeton’s program, known as “Ready, Set, Go”, includes 10 sessions for children enrolled for the coming year, to visit the school and participate in a variety of activities.
Experiences include play based activities in the Prep Centre, Perceptual Motor Program, visits to the Library and Performing Arts room and outdoor play.
Our Program also includes five information sessions for parents. These sessions provide information about your child’s transition to school and programs offered at Templeton, while giving you the opportunity to meet other parents and have questions answered.
The children who take part in our Transition Program, become more confident and excited about starting school. Our aim is to provide the support your child needs to achieve his or her full potential.
Year 7 Transition
The transition to Year 7 begins in Grade 5 at Templeton. Parents are encouraged to visit the local schools throughout Grade 5 to reach an informed decision of the appropriate secondary school for your child. This decision needs to be finalised during Term 2 of Grade 6. Our Grade 5 students attend transition sessions at Wantirna Secondary College in Semester 2, experiencing a secondary school environment for the first time.
The department transition timeline begins in Term 1 of Grade 6. Throughout the year, our Grade 6 Team actively prepare the students for secondary school, through increased independence, use of diary, musical, excursions and camp. The Grade 6 Team conducts a Transition Information Night to assist parents with the process, and parents are encouraged to contact their classroom teacher if you have any concerns or questions about transition.
