The Prep 2018 Orientation Day is on Tuesday 5th December from 9.30am to 1.15pm. This orientation day completes the School Transition Program, and will include playtime with Year 5 Buddies.

Start of School in 2018

The start of school for the 2018 Preps is changing from past years. Term 1 commences on Monday 29th January 2018, however this day is a statewide student free day for all Victorian government schools. Each government school is allocated three additional student free days in the school year. The first of these student free days at EHPS will be Tuesday 30th January 2018.

Prep students will not be required at school between Wednesday 31st January and Tuesday 6th February, and will commence school on Wednesday 7th February 2018. In the first week, 31st January to 6th February, Prep students will be allocated a School Entry Assessment (SEA) interview day and time; this is conducted with the child only and will be approximately one hour in duration.
