At St. Andrew’s Grammar, we recognise that the change in expectation, routines and traditions from the Primary Years to the Secondary Years can be a challenging one for students. The Year 6 to Year 7 Transition program aims to provide students with a seamless shift between the Schools, minimising disruption and confusion.
While students are still in Year 6, they are exposed to the routines, procedures and structure of the Secondary School Day in carefully curated lessons planned and actioned by Secondary School Staff. These classes give students a ‘taste’ of what to expect in Year 7, allowing them time to adequately prepare for ‘the big change.’
In their final term in the Primary Years, the School hosts a Transition Day for current Year 6s, as well as inviting those joining St. Andrew’s Grammar from other schools. As part of this action-packed day, students tour the Secondary School grounds and classrooms, spend time with their future teachers and participate in classes which give them a sneak peek on the day-to-day life of a Year 7 student.
Prior to their commencement of Year 7 in Term 1, Orientation Day is an opportunity for new students to become familiar with the School, meet their teachers, receive their timetable and learn how to navigate the School.
