Year 7

Orientation Day

Starting high school is a time of new experiences as your child adjusts to a new school, makes new friends and gets used to having different teachers and classrooms for each subject. 

Thank you to everyone who attended Orientation Day. Early in Term 1 school timetables are issued to all Year 7 students and our Prefects begin travel training with them.

Year 7 Assessment Calendar

The Year 7 Assessment Calendar is a guide to due dates and other important information for Year 7. Individual class submission dates may vary due to the respective class timetables. The calendar is indicative of the week that a task will fall due. For courses where there is no formal written exam, assessment may fall due in class during the assessment or exam week.

Illness and Misadventure

Our Illness/Misadventure application form is the correct way to apply for extensions of assignment due dates and special consideration regarding examinations.

Y8 Subject Selection

In Term 3 students and parents/carers will receive a booklet and be guided through the Subject Selection process for Year 8. Subject specific staff will also be available for students, parents/carers to consult about choices. This year's Y8 Curriculum Handbook outlines the current mandatory and elective courses for students and will give you some idea of what is likely to be offered next year.

Across the year we run Parent Learning Group (PLG) sessions for parents and carers in the Learning Centre, here are the most recent presentations we've delivered:
