With the goal of helping Year 7 students settle into high school as smoothly as possible the Year 7 students have a timetabled ‘Transition’ class one period each week. 

Students in the weekly Transition class will:

  • Participate in activities to help them settle into high school such as tips on how to be organised and time management techniques.
  • Assistance with becoming more familiar with their Macbook and the student intranet.
  • Develop skills needed for high school learning such as typing faster, learning how to do effective research in the library and study skills.
  • Set goals for their learning.
  • Address wellbeing and social skills such as communicating effectively.
  • Develop an awareness of their own skills, interests and hobbies that might spark career ideas for the future.

The Year 7 Transition classes complement the Thursday afternoon Peer Mentor Program in assisting Year 7 students as they begin their high school journey.
