The first year of secondary school is of fundamental importance.
In Year 7 our students engage in an integrated curriculum that aids their transition and models how we learn beyond the school walls. They solve problems and develop an appreciation for critical and creative thinking.
Year 7 and 8 students experience an integrated curriculum where enquiry based learning sees the development of key skills. Our Literacy and Numeracy program (where we either read or do maths for 10 minutes at the start of every lesson, and for 30 minutes once a fortnight), functions to build resilient readers with a wide vocabulary well equipped for senior school.
Working in our adaptable classroom environments, students have opportunities to work collaboratively, but also to relish time working independently. Your child will experience learning modelled in a range of ways and settings.
Coupled with our emphasis on learning, is the emphasis we place on relationships.
It is our sincere belief that we must know our students as people first and then as learners… so building strong relationships is our first goal when your child arrives here.
Transition into Year 8
Every student currently in Year 7 – 11 begins their next academic year with a Commencement Program (Friday 20 November – Friday 4 December 2020). This is a compulsory transition process. Newly enrolled students for the following year are strongly encouraged to participate. We may ask your child to complete tasks over the summer holidays.
