Prep Transition is an important program for all students starting Prep in 2017 and the Cooran State School Prep Transition Program begins in Term 4. The program operates over 4 single days from 9am til 11am. In 2016 families can choose to either attend the transition days on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Monday.
