Year 7 & 8 Transition

Our Philosophy

The Transition Program aims to foster a positive, supportive relationship between students, their peers and their teachers to enhance their emotional, social and academic wellbeing. It supports Years 7 and 8 students as they transition into an environment of increased independence, where they are encouraged to become lifelong learners who embody the College’s values as ethical, compassionate and empowered global citizens.

A Focus on Wellbeing

The socio-emotional and spiritual wellbeing of students is a high priority at All Saints’.  Our Tutor Groups are important elements of stability and support for students. The relationship with the Tutor is central to this care. In the Transition Program, students are in class groups so that issues of early adolescence can be dealt with in a secure environment.

The Learning Program 

Students follow a program that exposes them to the different Learning Areas using the Western Australian Curriculum. It provides them with a strong foundation in the knowledge, skills and strategies required in later studies. Our aim is for students to have a wide variety of experiences in Years 7 and 8, which will help them to make informed decisions about pathways they will take in subsequent years. In Years 9 and 10 students can choose from exciting elective possibilities ranging from Photography to The Arts, from Languages to Outdoor Education.

Students are encouraged to develop independence in and responsibility for their learning during Years 7 and 8. The delivery of the curriculum is supported by dynamic practices of peer collaboration, integration and direct teaching. Use of technology is an important tool in this process.
