As a school, we appreciate that leaving Primary school marks not only a significant change in your child’s life, but also signals a fundamental change in teaching style, approach to learning and educational expectation.
As educators we know that entering secondary school for the first time can be a potentially daunting time, for both you and your child, particularly if you are experiencing a child entering Secondary school for the first time. Entering “Big” school is different, and in recognition of that difference, Year 7 transition is managed very differently to other types of enrolment.
The transition journey information below is designed to help guide parents and carers whose child has received notification that their child has received a place at PGS ALC.
