Grade 6’s – Last term at a class meeting we started talking about transition. What are you most looking forward to about year seven? What are you worried about? What would you like to know more about? Do you have any questions, or things you’d like to ask and don’t want to ask in front of others?
Grade 5’s – What are you looking forward to in Grade 6? What are your hopes and fears? Do you have any questions? Are you interested in running for team captain and if so, why?

Yesterday at assembly we had a visit by Jeri Fox from Kambrya College. She told us some things that grade 6’s heading to Kambrya next year could expect, and answered some of our questions about secondary school. Below is a copy of the flyer that went home with all students about their open night next Monday night.
On Friday afternoon we will be having some teachers and students from Berwick Secondary coming to speak to us as well, where we will be able to ask more questions about going to secondary school.

On Thursday grade 6 students took home information about Berwick Secondary’s High Achiever’s Program for Year 7s in 2012.
What is the High Achievers Program?
At Berwick Secondary College we do our best to cater for all students in the community. Students who show high academic aptitude and have high academic aspirations are particularly suited to our High Achiever Program.
This program, which has been running successfully for 6 years, allows students to progress through school with their age peers whilst ensuring they remain challenged with work appropriate to their abilities. Emphasis is placed on higher level thinking, problem solving and academic achievement. Involvement in the performing arts and community projects are also features of this program.
For more information about this program, check out the Berwick Secondary College website. Other information and links about the Grade 6 Transition program can be found here.
