Summer School 2021
The summer school held during July 2021 was aimed at our incoming year 7 students who would most benefit from the extra transition support and time in school. This was particularly so in view of the cancellation of the year 6 to 7 transition days due to be held earlier in the month. Close liaison with our partner primary schools ensured that 100 of the most needing students were invited for the five days of the summer school. Students participated in a variety of activities with both internal and external staff providing these. Internal activities focused on literacy, numeracy and science while external activities included sports, dance, problem-solving, chemistry/science and wellbeing visiting speakers/organisations.
The summer school also focused on introducing students to key school staff and familiarising them with school procedures and routines.
