- * Secondary School transition meeting for Year 5 and 6 parents21Sep2018
9:00 am - 10:00 am @ Middle Floor Hall
Parents and carers of children in Year 5 and 6 are invited to attend a transition meeting with Sam Lord (Education and Transition Consultant). The session takes parents, carers and guardians through the secondary school process, breaks down myths and barriers that they may of previously held about the process. The session gives an opportunity to ask any questions they have regarding secondary school transition and explore options that they might not have thought about before. The information is current and up to date. The session ensures that parents understand the admission criteria of different schools and that they are aware of how important it is to make six pragmatic choices for their children. They are made aware of the online application process and how to navigate around the online application form and upload additional information. The meeting will take place in the Middle Floor Hall and will be for approximately one hour. Sam Lord will be available to answer questions. We are inviting both Year 5 and Year 6 parents as previously our Year 5 parents have found this useful to be able to have more time to explore the options available.
