Support for New Year 7 students

Helping our Year 7 students to feel happy and secure as they adjust to the greater complexity of secondary school begins with our Primary School Secondary Sampler program.  Year 5 and 6 students visit the school for cultural, sporting, science and technology experiences and, of course, orientation day in December.


These positive experiences help primary students to quickly form new friendships at the school, broaden their horizons, meet future teachers and build the confidence they will need to feel welcome on commencement at Fairhills.
