Year 7/8 Transition

 

Starting secondary school is an important stage in your child’s education. At Loxton High School we are committed to making the transition from primary to secondary schooling a positive and enjoyable experience.

 

We liaise closely with our local primary schools to ensure a smooth transition program. These schools include Department for Education and Child Development (DECD) sites Loxton, Loxton North, Moorook and Kingston-on-Murray Primary Schools as well as St Albert’s Catholic Primary and Loxton Lutheran Primary Schools in Loxton. Students receive their Loxton High School enrolment form and information about our transition program through their Year 7 Teacher.

 

Students from other primary schools are also welcome to enrol at Loxton High. Parents are requested to contact Loxton High School and we then communicate enrolment and transition information directly with you to ensure a smooth transition for your child. School tours may be arranged by appointment to assist in deciding upon your high school of choice.

 

Key activities of the transition program are:

Term 2 - Enrolment forms are distributed and returned by the end of the term
Term 3 - Year 8 students visit primary schools to talk to Year 7 students about their transition experience
Term 4 - Orientation Day at Loxton High School for Year 7 students

  • Lesson Day at Loxton High School for Year 7 students
  • Year 7/8 Social hosted by the Student Representative Council in conjunction with a Parent Information Evening, including a school tour.

 

 

We look forward to the opportunity of providing your child with a supportive transition program and to supporting your child’s secondary education in the years to come.
