YEAR 6 TO YEAR 7 TRANSITION

Moving from Year 6 into Year 7 is a very exciting time for students and their families.  At Berwick College, we follow the Department of Education and Training statewide transition program.  

Most of the transition for Year 6 to 7 in 2024 is handled by your primary school.  They will distribute a “Year 6 into 7 Transition Information Pack” to families early in Term 2 or you can download the ‘Placement Information Pack’ (available Week 1, Term 2, 2022). This process involves you nominating the secondary school you would like your child to attend. Completed application forms are then returned to your child’s primary school.

All communication about your child’s placement must be with the Year 6 Coordinator or Transition Coordinator at your child’s primary school until the placement is confirmed.

Year 7 placement is decided by secondary schools. You will receive notification of your child’s Year 7 placement, from your primary school on Wednesday 19th July.

By holding a year 7 information night in early Term two and numerous tours in both Term one and Term two (conducted by our vice principals), we hope families will be as informed as possible about our college and what we can offer for every student. We also have a virtual tour available on our website at any time.

The dates and information below are subject to change and we encourage families to regularly check our website and Facebook page for the most up to date information.

We recommend visiting the following link from our website to see if your property is within our zone. https://www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au/
