Year 6 Transition

Year 6 Transition 

Dear Parent/carer

Due to the COVID-19 situation in 2020, we have been severely restricted as to the number of transition events we have been able to organise.  Term 4 is always a busy term for us, but we have managed to schedule the following events: 

TASTER LESSONS
Year 7 2021 Year Advisors Miss Fekete and Mr Fellas will be visiting our Partner Primary Schools to spend some time with Year 6 students and give them a taste of high school lessons. They will be visiting: 
Monday 2 November - Wallsend Public School
Tuesday 3 November - Plattsburg Public School
Tuesday 17 November - Maryland Public School
Wednesday 18 November - Glendore Public School

ABORIGINAL STUDENT TRANSITION 
This two day program will run on Thursday 19 and Tuesday 24 November 2020 from 9.30am - 2.30pm. Information and permission notes will soon be distributed to primary schools. 

PARENT INFORMATION ZOOM MEETING - 7PM MONDAY 30 NOVEMBER 2020
We will be holding a Parent Information Meeting via Zoom - Parents will be sent an email with the access code closer to the date. Please make sure you keep your email address updated with your primary school to ensure you recieve your email. 

OFFICIAL ORIENTATION DAY
All Year 6 students attending Callaghan College Wallsend Campus are invited to attend this Orientation Day. Information will be emailed to you soon. Please be aware that parent/carers will not be attending on the orientation day, information regarding your childs class will be included in the email invitation to the Parent/Carer Zoom Meeting. Students will receive the Year 7 2021 Student Handbook on the day, so watch out for that. Full explanation about this day will be given on Parent/Carer Information Zoom Meeting.
