Transition to Secondary School


Year 7 Transition

The transition from primary to secondary school is an exciting time for students and their parents. It is the next stage in a lifelong educational journey leading to new experiences and challenges.

Teacher Collaboration

We collaborate with many secondary schools to ease the students through the transition period. This is achieved through verbal and/or written communication between the child’s Year 6 teacher and a representative from the secondary school. The Grade 6 teachers at Bellbrae Primary School frequently visit our local secondary schools and have developed excellent professional relationships with our colleagues in many secondary schools.


Teaching & Learning Strategies

Steps are also taken to prepare children for the different teaching methods of secondary school. We use a variety of teaching strategies to ensure that the children develop skills in connecting and collaborating with a variety of teachers and students.


School Wide Positive Behaviours

We explicitly teach our students lessons related to Bellbrae’s School Values of Aspire, Responsibility, Respect and Resilience. Throughout Grade 6 our values lessons are linked to the challenges of transitioning from Grade 6 to Year 7.
