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 Head 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.
Students in Years 7 and 8 should be exposed to a broad-based curriculum that provides experiences in all of the key learning areas laying a foundation for students to make choices from a wide range of elective studies at senior level. As they transition to Year 9, elective offerings and global exchanges encourage students to experiment, explore, challenge and try out new curriculum areas.
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 (French and Chinese)
- Media Studies
- Physical Education
- Health and Personal Development – bullying awareness, understanding changes and challenges in adolescence and making healthy choices
