The beginning of secondary school is a critical time for students especially as they move away from the small primary schools of Kinglake and begin their travels to many different schools across the region.
To assist with this we are inviting Grade Six students to participate in our Tuesday Secondary School only drop-in night for all of Term 4.
When direct interaction between primary school students and secondary students occurs on a regular basis prior to entry we know that young people develop their self-esteem and confidence. Our high school students welcome the Grade 6 students for the last Term and look forward to becoming a familiar face for the Grade 6s as they move onto their new bus and school.
The young people plan and cook dinner to share together and then they can just chill, do some art or practice an instrument in the music studio. The year six students will be able to chat to the older ones about secondary school and what to expect.
