Year 7 to 8 transition

At Woodcroft Primary we have two major programmes in preparing children for the next level of schooling. These are: kindergarten (pre-school) to foundation and year 7 to year 8 (high school).

In both situations, a number of formal preparatory visits are arranged by staff with the institutions involved, to ensure that the transition from one level to the next is made smoothly. Parents are kept informed about these transition programmes.

Year 7 public school students will be taught in high school from term 1, 2022. This means that from 2022, year 6 will be the last year of primary school and year 7 will be the first year of high school. Year 7 is already part of high school across the country so this move will bring South Australia in line with other states and territories, as well as other education systems in our state.
