Year 7 Settling into High School
The Settling Into High School Program is an enriching and fulfilling process for all participants in which Year 10 students offer peer support for small groups of Year 7 students. Year 10 students gain valuable experience in leadership and organisational ability. The older students will share their knowledge, understanding and experiences and help the younger students to gain personal skills to solve any problems they may encounter in their first year of High School. The Settling Into High School Program is run through the Learning Support Team.
Year 7 students build up a support network for the future and experience a wide range of lesson themes including how to make new friends, school values as displayed in our Positive Behaviour for Learning theme at Winmalee High School, coping with challenges, getting on with everyone, study skills and team building. The bond between students will be reinforced with regular meetings throughout the year.
