The Year 7 transition team will visit students in their primary school to meet them and help prepare them for their move to our school. They will also discuss the needs of each student with their primary teachers. Last year we met Year 6 students ‘remotely’ by holding Zoom meetings with groups from our different feeders. Hopefully this year we will be able to visit you all in person, but if that is not possible we know Zoom provides a great alternative.
