Year 7 - Transitioning to Senior School

Whether your child is moving from our Junior School to our Senior School, or coming from another primary school, our teachers understand this importance on a seamless transition to Year 7.

Transition from junior to senior coincides with physical, social, emotional and cognitive growth and development.

Adolescence can be a time of significant growth and development of a person's brain.  The area of brain growth is in the frontal lobe effecting 'executive functioning.'  At Mary MacKillop Catholic College, we take all of these factors into consideration, as well as the individual needs of your child.  A tried and tested transition program is in place for all students moving from Year 6 to Year 7.
