Your child's future begins with us

The start of primary school is an important time for children and their families.  Children who make a positive start to school are most likely to feel:

  • Comfortable, relaxed and valued
  • Positive about themselves as learners, and
  • A sense of belonging to the school community.

At Orrvale, we create a 'sense of belonging' by taking the time to get to know each child and their family through our detailed transition program.
