Transition to Secondary Education

Ater the familiar surroundings of primary school, the move to secondary school will be both an exciting and perhaps daunting time for both you and your child.

Orientation days at secondary schools

As part of the transition from Year 6 to Year 7, students in government secondary schools participate in an orientation day. All government schools hold this orientation day on the same day (often the second Tuesday of December). It may include a school tour, meeting fellow students and teachers, and taking part in special lessons and activities.
