Cockburn Gazette - - EDUCATION MATTERS -

GIVE your child the best start to sec­ondary school at John Wol­las­ton Angli­can Com­mu­nity School, with its Year 7 Tran­si­tion Pro­gram.

The year be­gins with an ad­ven­ture-based camp where friendships are forged and the tight-knit com­mu­nity of Year 7 de­vel­ops.

The Year 7s are housed in their own pur­pose­built, eco-friendly Year 7 Cen­tre with un­der­floor heat­ing.

Stu­dents have a teacher with whom they spend most of their day as they slowly get a taste of the sec­ondary en­vi­ron­ment by at­tend­ing spe­cial­ist classes in­clud­ing vis­ual arts, sci­ence and food tech­nol­ogy.

The school has de­vel­oped this suc­cess­ful year-long aca­demic, pas­toral and co-cur­ric­u­lar pro­gram over the past 10 years and word of mouth has en­sured strong en­rol­ments.

Head of Year 7 Jac­que­line Fisher said the school has de­vel­oped a com­plete Tran­si­tion Map to give stu­dents the knowl­edge and skills to in­te­grate into sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion.

“The Year 7s be­come con­fi­dent, com­fort­able and fo­cused learn­ers ready to tackle the rigours of Year 8 and beyond,” she said.
