On Thursday 15 November, the Year 6 classes were involved in a Transition Day where they participated in variety of activities to prepare them for Year 7 next year.
The morning session was run by Mr Daniel Lynch, Deputy Principal Mission & Catholic Identity and the 2019 College Captains, Courtney and Matthew. The students were encouraged to “Come To The Edge” as they continue their schooling journey. After recess, the students got to discuss their fears, excitement and expectations of High School with the College’s Social Worker, Mrs Caryl Gioia and participate in a Q&A session with a number of Year 7 students, and College Psychologists Mr Jon Laden-Wearne and Mrs Denise Bendotti. The students then enjoyed a tour of the Marcellin Campus, guided by the Year 9 students.
After lunch, the students were addressed by Mr Patrick Woolley, Leader of Wellbeing Year 7, where they enjoyed reflecting on their time in Primary School and touch on their expectations of High School.

On Thursday 15 November, the Year 6 students experienced a Transition Day to prepare us for the upcoming events in Year 7. In our first activity, we discussed our fears and worries with Caryl. We created a brainstorm of what we are nervous and excited about for next year. The second activity was a Q&A with the current Year 7 students. They told us everything we need to know about High School. The final activity of the day was a tour around the school with the current Year 9 students. They showed us all of the different places around the school. We enjoyed this Transition Day and we are all really looking forward to Year 7!
