Year 7 Transition

Welcome to our school community

We expect that the learning journey that your child is about to begin will be full of engaging and challenging learning and social experiences within a school that offers great support, a broad curriculum and extra curricula opportunities.

The transition into secondary education is a milestone event for children and is always accompanied by a range of emotions, from the excitement of a new environment to the anxiety of meeting new classmates and teachers or the nervous expectation of new teaching and learning experiences. There are extensive support networks in the school, beginning with the culture of care that is a key feature of our middle schooling philosophy.

Our school has a strong emphasis on the development of productive and respectful relationships. We aim to provide the best possible learning opportunities so that students can perform to their full potential both academically and socially. 

On the first day of school in 2019, students are expected to be fully prepared to begin their learning journey. They will need a laptop, school uniform and stationery so they can properly engage in their new classes. Students will gather outside the gym where Mr Caleb Macrow, Assistant Principal Middle School, will welcome them, introduce them to their Year 8 Home Group Teachers and direct them to their first high school lesson.
