Year 7 and 8 students experience a comprehensive program that provides a broad curriculum to interest and enhance all learners. English and Maths are a priority while Humanities, Science, Physical Education, LOTE, Health, Technology and The Arts ensure that students have the opportunity to develop and achieve in all disciplines.

All Year 7 students utilise iPads to enhance their learning experiences. Students use iPads to communicate and express themselves, to research and present their work, and to share their knowledge with others locally and globally.

The College promotes positive student-teacher relationships with Home Group Teachers, Year Level Coordinators and Curriculum Leaders working together with the student wellbeing team to support students socially, emotionally and academically. Various engagement activities such as camps, excursions, student leadership, lunchtime clubs, sports and outdoor activities encourage participation, achievement, respect and teamwork.

The Year 7 Curriculum provides our students with a solid foundation for future learning by building sequential knowledge and skill development in English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Languages Other Than English (German and Japanese). The College has vibrant Arts, Technology and Design programs where students enjoy a range of creative learning experiences. The Health and Physical Education program places a strong emphasis on active participation and healthy life styles. Our iPad Program supports teaching and learning across the Junior School as each student has access to their own device in a wireless environment.

Transition into Year 7

The transition from primary to secondary school is seamless for our Year 7 students. Our transition program starts with North Geelong students and teachers visiting primary schools from Grade 3. In Grade 6 all students are invited to the College early in the year for a ‘taste’ of secondary school and then later in the year there is a specialised two day program that allows students to develop new friendships and familiarise themselves with their new surroundings. Students start their first secondary school year with confidence.

Year 7 students have a significant teacher who starts each day with them in home group and is also one of their core subject teachers. This teacher plays a major role supporting and dealing with pastoral care matters that may arise during the year. Students at Year 7 have the majority of their classes in a designated area to further support their transition to secondary school. Each student is provided with a locker in a separate area to the older students within the College.

The Year 7 Camp is an integral part of our transition program. The camp experience allows students and staff to build positive relationships in a fun learning environment.
