Transition to High School


The Induction Program plays a major role in welcoming Year 7 students to the school.  Trained volunteer students act as mentors and introduce positive peer influence to Year 7.  This helps Year 7 to integrate more easily into the school and to build friendships with others in their year.  Each Year 7 student will have an older friend in the wider school community.

The Induction Program is part of a well planned transition from Year 6 to Year 7 that ensures all Year 7 students settle into their secondary education feeling confident, respected, cared for and welcome.

An Information Night is held for parents of Year 6 students who have enrolled for the following Year 7.  Senior student leaders, Year 7 Advisors and senior staff members outline aspects of the school in relation to Year 7 such as pastoral care, curriculum, uniform, special programs and events on orientation day, the mentor program, day 1 and term 1 of high school.
