Supporting the transition into secondary school


Chapel in the quadrangle

It is a privilege to share the special time of transition from primary school to secondary school with students and their parents.

Luther College believes that investing in the formation of strong relationships amongst students, their families and the College community, is an essential precursor in the development of positive, safe schools.

Our transition program from primary school to secondary school includes familiarisation with the College for Year 6 students. Specialised Year 7 and 8 teachers create a safe and supportive learning environment in which students grow academically and personally in confidence. We invest the time to make the transition to Luther as smooth and as calm as possible and our Middle School building is purpose built to facilitate a successful transition.

The Year 7 camp is intentionally held in the first week of the school year as it is a key component of our transition program for new Year 7 students. The activities are designed to foster positive relationships between students and establish connections both amongst the peer group and with staff.

Our Year 8 camp continues with a focus on transition and provides structured activities that emphasise team building and the continuation of building positive peer relationships amongst the students.
