The transition from primary to secondary school is a major step for many students. The Buckley Park College transition program assists this process and helps students feel welcome, valued and confident. Students in Year 7, for instance, have a form room where most of their classes take place. Our Peer Support program, developed by our Wellbeing Team, allocates Year 10 Leaders to each form group. These leaders plan and run lessons to engage students, help them connect with peers and feel part of and get to know the college as a whole. The leaders will also be involved in the Year 7 Adanac Camp in Term 1, further helping develop social skills, resilience and independence.
In Term 4, future Year 7s will get a taste of high school through the transition program. Key dates can be found below.
