Year Seven - Transition to Secondary School
Our nurturing Head of Year Seven and passionate Academic Welfare Teachers provide outstanding support to underpin your child's transition from Primary to Secondary School, as they develop into the confident and creative learners of today, ready to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
In Year Seven, students study a broad range of subjects, following the Australian curriculum, as they develop subject-specific skills and make links across and between disciplines. We encourage innovative thinking in all learning areas and encourage skills in creativity, design thinking, problem-solving and reflection.

Our classroom spaces and outdoor areas are flexible in design, catering to a wide range of learning styles and teaching practices. We adapt our learning environment for specific purposes to increase the engagement and motivation of students in their learning, and to support each child to achieve their best.
As students grow through the Secondary School, we empower and guide them to be organised, independent, balanced and confident learners as they take full advantage of the JPC holistic education focusing on not only academics but enjoying the opportunity to participate in our many co-curricular programs.
Our transition program is designed to build purposeful connections, support the holistic needs of students, strengthen our partnership with parents and prepare students for success in Secondary School.
There is a range of support structures in place to support Year Seven students with their transition including:
Meet and greet sessions with key staff
'What I wish I'd known' session with current Year Seven students
Peer Support Program (Year Ten students mentoring Year Seven students)
Year Seven Camp
These activities are designed to support students and minimise any concerns students may have about beginning their Secondary Schooling journey. Further to this our outstanding teaching staff will assist students to work collaboratively, creating a challenging, engaging and safe environment to excel.

Coming from a different primary school, I found the first two weeks of high school a little overwhelming, but my awesome teachers and classmates helped me adjust to life at JPC. Now I am really enjoying making new friends and learning new skills. I enjoy all my classes, but I particularly like English, HPE and Geography.
