In Year 7 the curriculum offerings are designed to be both broad and balanced, with a strong focus upon independent learning and the building of sound academic foundational skills.
Our expert staff ensure that through a mixture of sound planning and spontaneity within the classroom, students are engaged to get the very most out of their education.
Our ongoing commitment to real-life learning further extends these benefits outside of the classroom. The curriculum is complemented by our well-established wellbeing program which ensures each girl is valued and supported in her own learning journey. Additionally, our Academic Honours Program and education support programs fully extend students’ learning.
Our Year 6 to Year 7 orientation program, guided by our Dean of Year 7, includes a series of orientation days conducted throughout the year, including sessions for parents. Our nurturing transition program allows students to establish friendships and connect with their Year 7 cohort as well as becoming acquainted with our School grounds, teaching staff, bell times and daily School life.
An emphasis on community and respect for the needs and views of others, as well as personal and organisational responsibility, is also a strong element of Year 7.
Throughout the year our Head of Year 7 provides ongoing guidance, pastoral care and coordination of the Year 7 cohort as well as ongoing communication with parents.
Our core subjects ensure our students gain a strong foundation in essential learning areas:
- Languages (Two languages may be studied from French, Japanese and Chinese)
- Media Studies
- Physical Education
- Health and Personal Development – bullying awareness, understanding changes and challenges in adolescence and making healthy choices
