Our Head Start to High School Program commenced last term and is part of our transition to high school program for our new Year 7 students and their families. We have run a series of after school workshops for students and parents which have been a huge success in connecting our new students and their families to our school.
Students have participated in a number of workshops in English, French, PDHPE, Maths, Technology and Applied Studies and Science. Not only have our new students thoroughly enjoyed the variety of activities, they are becoming familiar with our school’s learning environment, our staff, as well as each other, forging friendships before they start in 2014. Parents have also 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.
This program will continue this term with student workshops in Computing, HSIE and Dance, followed by our year 7 Information Evening and Orientation Day.
