The KARI Transition to Kindergarten Backpack program is coordinated via the distribution of a free resource pack supported in partnership with the Department of Communities & Justice (DCJ). The pack consists of a school bag and carefully selected, relevant resources to nurture skill development and further support the transition of Aboriginal youth into kindergarten from home.

The program is also supported by a free, 10-part YouTube video series sharing practical ideas for parents, carers and young people to navigate their journey through the developmental early years into Kindergarten.

Hosted by celebrated Aboriginal television and film actor, Luke Carroll, Getting Ready for School – The Deadly Way is an exciting resource aimed at supporting and empowering our young people, and their families, to have the best start to their early school years.
