The move from primary to secondary school is a major milestone for your child and creates big changes in their life, development and education. Secondary school is an opportunity for your child to be challenged and to develop the valuable skills they will take with them into their adult life. Leaving the familiar surroundings of primary school will be both exciting and daunting for both you and your child.
We have purpose built classrooms for the Year 7's and we have worked tirelessly to ensure a smooth transition from primary to secondary. Our transition program ensures students are given many opportunities to visit the College and participate in a range of activities. These programs will equip students with the confidence necessary as they begin this exciting journey and life in secondary.
We invite all Year 5/6 and new secondary students for a day of hands-on educational activities.
The transition into secondary school can be daunting for students and parents. St Mary’s College values the benefits of transition for our new students. To assist parents in finding out more about St Mary’s as an option for secondary, we invite students of the Fraser Coast to come and try our Taster Day.
Your child will be offered a full secondary school experience for the day as well as the opportunity to make connections with other students.
From the moment of arriving at the campus, staff and students will be on hand to greet your child.
All visiting students will receive a Taster Pack that includes information on St Mary’s College that will help you to make an informed decision about your child’s education and future.
