We welcome our new Year 7 students and their families to our school through our Head Start to High School Program. This is Gymea’s transition to high school program for our new Year 7 students and their families whereby we run a series of after school workshops over 3 weeks to connect them with our school.
Students have participated in a number of workshops in French, PDHPE, TAS, English, Maths, Science, Drama. Next week we have workshops in Computing, HSIE, Dance and Art. While students are busy in classes, parents have participated in a series of workshops to help them gain a greater understanding of our school and high school life, forming positive partnerships with our school.
Not only have our new students thoroughly enjoyed the variety of activities, they are becoming familiar with our school’s learning environment, their Year Advisers Ms Moir and Ms Heath, our staff, as well as each other, forging friendships before they start in 2017.
This program will continue in term 4 with the year 7 Information Evening, Family Interviews and Orientation Day.
