Transition Videos on APS Youtube Channel


During the pandemic, we developed some videos to assist with transition which many families enjoyed. We hope these videos could support the dialogues around transition to school at home and provide an enjoyable first contact with school learning.


Whilst you are on our Youtube Channel, we hope you will also take the time to enjoy the other videos we have published in memory of special events we have hosted over time!


Onsite Transition - Thursday, 17 November


The onsite transition experience will take place this month on Thursday, 17 November. This event is an essential part of the transition offered to all 2023 Foundation students, so please ensure that a parent/carer is available to attend with your child.


To ensure that your child has the best experience possible, we will be splitting the cohort into 2 groups by your child’s surname. Please bring your child to the onsite transition experience at the following times:

  • A-L at 9:10am-10:30am
  • M-Z at 11:30am-12:50pm

The onsite experience will consist of activities in both Chinese and English with the current Foundation teachers. Your child will also get to meet some of our current Foundation students who will help them to participate in the activities during the session.


Approximately â…“ of the way into the onsite experience, we will ask parents to join us in the Staff Room for the second half of “Getting Your Child Ready for School.” The focus of this information session will be on academic readiness for English, Chinese and Maths. You will reconvene with your child towards the end of the onsite experience.


End-of-Year Picnic - Thursday, 15 December (3:45-5:45pm)


We can confirm that the End-of-Year Picnic will take place between 3:45-5:45pm on Thursday, 15 December. We invite you to join us for this wonderful end-of-year celebrations comprising musical performances by students and a special APS movie produced by the Junior School Council.


At this event, there will also be a sausage sizzle, bake sale, coffee van, secondhand uniform sale and potentially a clothing exchange (TBC). Bring a rug (and your own food if you’d like) and come and join us for… what will hopefully be a sunny afternoon! Please note, attendance at End-of-Year Picnic is strongly encouraged, but not essential.
