Year 6 Induction Days

270 Year 6 students are transferring to Thornleigh this September to become our new Year 7.

This increased number of students means that we have added a new form group – Lambda.

During two induction days in July, these students used self-belief to move out of their comfort zone and into their learning zone. They grew, lived out curiosities, made new discoveries and learned as they prepare to become valued members of our school community in September.

The first steps on this leg of their journey to achieving their personal and academic best involved a team-building day and a curriculum day. On the team building day, students completed learning passports that demonstrated they had showed self-belief by composing music, motivation by designing micro-bits in computing, awareness of others in performing arts, resilience by making fidget spinners in creative studies and team-work in sport.

On the curriculum day, the students continued to build on the gains made in primary school by continuing their SMART Steps curriculum work in English, Maths and Science. On both days, students were supported by our fantastic team of Year 9 SMART Steps Mentors. We are confident that these 270 young people are now one step further across their bridge into Year 7 and look forward to welcoming them to their summer activity days on 30th and 31st August.
