As we move through November students are working hard in the classroom finishing off work and undertaking assessment in readiness for the final reporting period of the year. Along with the work in the classroom, students have been busy with a wide range of activities outside the classroom.

Grade 6 to Year 7 Transition
This last week saw our future Year Seven students come to the college to undertake literacy and numeracy testing over three busy days. This testing is used to place students in classes and provides benchmark data for teachers in preparing for our new Year 7 cohort. The students also had the opportunity to tour the Junior Campus helping them with their transition to secondary school.
Primary School Visits
The Junior Campus Leadership Team have been busy visiting our local primary schools as part of the transition process. These visits provide valuable information that helps students move from primary school to secondary college.
Working Bee – Sunday 12 November
As you can see from the picture the working bee on Sunday 12 November was a great success. It was a productive morning many garden beds being covered with mulch and a number of others being cut back and weeded. Thanks to the many parents, students and staff who attended.
