Year 6 to Year 7
The transition from Year 6 to Year 7 is very significant in a F-12 school for both current and prospective students. Many things are different and a lot of change is
involved. Our Year 6 to Year 7 Transition program typically engages students from Inglewood Primary School, St Mary's Inglewood Primary School and Bridgewater Primary School.
The Year 6 to Year 7 Transition program runs from mid-way through Term 3 into Term 4, ending with the statewide 'Step Up' Day which is usually held in in the second week of December.
In preparation for Year 7 at Wedderburn College, current and prospective students participate in a number of subject based classes spaced out over the 3 transition
days. During these classes, students meet their teachers, participate in “Get to Know You” activities, practice using lockers and changing classrooms, and gain an
appreciation of the daily life of a secondary student within our College.
Our Year 6 to Year 7 Transition program provides our prospective new students with a solid grounding for Day 1 of their Year 7 experience, and also appeals strongly to our existing students as they get to experience the vastly different life of a secondary student in a F-12 College.
