Transition Events

Before Commencing

To ensure a smooth transition for each individual student from primary to secondary school, Fairhills High School offers an extensive transition program. We believe the more contact our students have with their future teachers, classmates and learning environment, prior to commencing at our School, the better they will settle into life as a secondary student.

Various Transition Events

  • Discovery Days for senior primary school students
  • Teacher visits to primary schools
  • Orientation Day – a full day’s activities for all incoming Year 7 students
  • Parent Information Sessions and welcome BBQ for new students and their families
  • Unique Year 7 three day induction program for parents and students addressing educational issues, social and emotional developments faced at school and home

Enrolling Your Child

Fairhills High School adheres to the Department of Education Policy, which sets out requirements for entry into Victorian government schools, including admissions, enrolments, the placement of students and transfers between schools.

Government School

Students attending Year 6 in a government primary school are provided with a transition information package at the beginning of Term 2 by their current primary schools.

Once you have decided which school you wish your child to attend for Year 7, an Application for Year 7 Placement form must be filled out and returned to the Year 6 Coordinator at your primary school.

If you would like your child to attend Fairhills High School, it is important to list us as your first preference.

Non-government School

For students transitioning from an Independent Primary School, please see the information on:

Fairhills High School will notify you of the outcome.
