Carwatha has a strong tradition of transition processes that are individualised and nurturing. We pride ourselves on the strong collaboration we have with feeder primary schools. In Term 4 of the year before students begin at the college, our staff visit with primary staff to ensure that each child’s learning and social needs are well understood when we are allocating classes.
Year 7s have a designated space in the college in the purpose-built J Block building, that allows for instructional and team-based learning. The students have their lockers indoors and the college support staff - Learning House Leaders and Sub School Leader - are located in the centre should they need assistance.
Students and their families are welcomed at the college's annual Open Day where we showcase our programs, values and initiatives, and then more personally at the Meet and Greet Year7 event where staff and families can consolidate the transition process and ensure that the partnerships are well established.
