Transitioning into Year 7


Welcome to Year 7 at BrisbaneSDE! Transitioning to year 7 can be an exciting and a daunting experience. Home Based Supervisors and students can both get overwhelmed by the changes and new expectations. As Home Based Supervisors, you will work in partnership with teachers to ensure that your child develops the self-management and resilience to navigate successfully and respond to the challenges of Year 7.  At BrisbaneSDE we believe in ‘each student succeeding’. This belief is demonstrated each time we support a student to persevere through times of feeling overwhelmed. Or each time we encouraged a student to keep striving regardless of difficulties. It is this support from Home Based Supervisors and Teachers that allows each Year 7 student to form a strong foundation for their secondary schooling, and a deep sense of who they are, and what they can achieve. To support students on their journey through Year 7, BrisbaneSDE offers the following:

·         Year 7 Orientation Session and Whole School Orientation days.

·         Year Level Coordinator – Social sessions, Student Council.

·         Activity Days, Sports Days and Camps.

·         Learning for Success program at commence of year.

·         Daily Wellbeing Sessions run by teachers.

All of these opportunities foster students capacity to develop socially, build self-confidence and deepen their connections to the curriculum. We look forward to welcoming your child to Year 7 at BrisbaneSDE in 2018. We can’t wait to see them grow into this exciting phase of their education.
