I really hope you can work something out. You would have thought the school would take it into consideration.

that happened to me when I was six, I got separated from ALL my friends that I had from kindy and the first year etc.
It was hard the first term as I didn't really know anyone in my class but then by term 2 I was making good friends with the other girls in class and made another new group of friends.
my mum pointed out to me that I could still see my other friends at interval, lunch and afternoon break.
hope you can sort it smile
We've only spoken positive to her about it, not making a big deal just saying you'll be able to play at lunch. I know though it won't be that easy for her and I expect to see it manifest bad behaviour as it starts to worry her. She's a complicated kid.
Aww that's sad sad Hope something can get sorted. At my ds's school, each week for the last 5 weeks there have been kindy transition sessions held, and part of the point of these sessions is to see how the kids interact with each other so to help place them. Did your dd's school do anything similar to gage where children will fit in?
Well this is for grade 1 so I'm surprised her prep class teacher didn't say something or the assistant principal for that matter.
I really hope everything works out for the best for her, it's must be very distressing for both of you sad
All the schools I have worked at take friendship groups into consideration when deciding upon the classes for the following year. Most times, the children get to actually list 3 friends or so that they would like to be with in order of preference and teachers try to organise it so they are with at least 1 friend.
