Level 6 - Level 7 Transition

Students in Level 6 are involved in a supportive and effective program that enables their transition from Primary School to Secondary College to be as stress-free as possible. The transition program, supported by the ‘Hit the Ground Running’ program, includes:

  • Numerous visits to different secondary colleges

  • Level 7 student visits and talks to the students

Feedback from past students has indicated that this transition program has been extremely helpful in allowing students to settle at Secondary School quicker and easier.

Whole School Transition

Hughesdale Primary School has a whole school transition program to ensure smooth pathways for students when they progress through the school. This involves a transition day in December where they will move to their new year level in new classrooms. They will meet with their teacher for the following year and build relationships with each other during the day. There are also opportunities for students to have Q&A sessions with older students, giving them a chance to get advice straight from the students themselves.
