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. Beginning High School is a link to recap the information we presented at Orientation Day.

Early in Term 1 school diaries and 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.

Parent Learning Group

Early in Term 1 we commence the year with our Parent Learning Group (PLG) for Year 7 in the Learning Centre with the first Year 7 PLG. This was followed by English and Wellbeing presentations. And here is a link to the latest T2 W1 Y7 PLG presentation.
