Basic Equipment List and other information
YEAR 7 – TRANSITION INTO HIGH SCHOOL
To enable smooth transition into high school, the Head Teacher-Admin works closely with the Year 7 Adviser, and the following information relates to Year 7:
Year 7 Diaries
Students will receive a diary from their Year Adviser at the beginning of the year. Students will be required to bring this every day to school.
Year 7 ‘K-Days’ Orientation Program
The first three days of Year 7 students will participate in a program designed to familiarise them with all aspects of the high school setting.
Year 7 Learning Journals
Year 7 students will complete a learning Journal once a week. The Journal assists students in highlighting their strengths, developing their “yet to be strengths” and encourages communication, collaboration, creativity and/or critical reflection within themselves. The Learning Journals aim to promote “deep learning and understanding” of the three main sections in the Learning Dispositions Wheel; Intrapersonal, Interpersonal and Cognition.
Year 7 Teacher/Parent/Student BBQ evening
There will be an opportunity early on in the school year for parents/carers and their child to have a meet and greet with the staff at KHS.
Please find attached a letter advising the most up to date information (noting a change of start and finish time for the Year 6 Orientation Day), with further information on the plan for this day.
