Transition Days 
2024 Year 7 Students

Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

Just a reminder that Tuesday, December 12th, is the State-wide Orientation day for the 2024 Year 7 students. To make the transition as stress free for your child as possible we will also have an extra Transition Day on Monday, December 11th. We understand that some primary schools may have events on this day, however, we do encourage students to attend. Any student who needs to leave early must be signed out at the office.

We are requesting that students wear their Primary School uniform on these days; this assists us with better identifying students and also takes away the pressure for students of 'what to dress in' for the two days.

Our school day starts at 08:55am. We would therefore expect students to arrive by 08:45am, to be ready for their day. Both days will conclude at 3:15pm.

The focus of the Monday program will be Wellbeing and it will allow students to familiarise themselves with the day-to-day operation of the College.


We will be holding a BBQ lunch on Monday for the students. They will need to bring morning snacks on Monday (in addition to a water bottle), and snacks and lunch on Tuesday, as the canteen will be closed on both Transition Days 


On Tuesday students will be able to experience a normal day at secondary school. They will be assigned classes and will get the opportunity to meet many of our staff and to move around the College. We will be doing some preparation on reading the school timetable and there will be plenty of help on hand. Your child will need to bring pens, dress comfortably in their primary school uniform, wear covered sensible shoes, and carry a water bottle (in addition to their morning snacks and lunch). 

If you have any concerns or need further information, please contact the College on 5945 1433. We look forward to meeting your children. 

Thank you

Kay Chandler
Assistant Principal
