During Term 2 Mrs Bolt and Mr Harrison, visited the primary schools in the Albany area to talk about 'Year 6 student Transition to North Albany High School'. At some schools the year 7 NASHS student councillors and some year 9 students assisted us and were on hand to answer any questions from the year 6 students.
It was a pleasure to meet students from Yakamia, Mount Lockyer, Little Grove, Parklands and Woodbury Boston Primary Schools. The students were all very keen to hear about life at high school and the changes that they can expect. As part of our visits to the primary schools, students were given an enrolment pack which included information about the NASHS transition activities and enrolment forms.
All parents and guardians were asked to return enrolment packages to their school by the end of term
There is a well-developed program planned to support Year 6 students transitioning to NASHS.
Transition Days occur in Term 3 with one Wednesday morning visit, 9.00am-11.00am, for each primary school class. Each school has the dates for their class visit. NASHS year 7 teachers are also visiting primary schools each Friday this term. There is one final Transition Day in Term 4 on Friday 30th November, where students attend NASHS for the day. Students should wear their primary school uniform on these days, bring their lunch and stationary. More information will be provided through to students by their classroom teachers.
The NASHS community looks forward to meeting and working with the incoming Year 6 students.
