GENERIC EMAIL ADDRESS FOR SCHOOL TO RECEIVE TRANSITION STATEMENTS FOR NEW ENROLMENTS FROM EARLY CHILDCARE PROVIDERS

To facilitate the sharing of transition statements between early childhood education and care (ECEC) services and schools, the Department has created a generic transition email address for schools to receive transition statements for new enrolments.

 

transitions@blackbuttss.eq.edu.au

 

These new email addresses were developed to make it easier for kindergartens to send the statements to the correct school.
