The process of allocating children to classes can take many weeks. We look at a variety of aspects in order for each child to have a successful Prep year. Every effort is made to ensure your child has at least one friend in their class. To assist us with this process, could you please fill in the attached slip and return to Somers Primary School by Friday 16th October.


If you have any questions about the above transition process, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
