Grade 6 to Year 7 Transition

We understand that finding the right school for your children is a very important decision your family will make. At Fairhills High School we organise a range of open events, information sessions and tours for prospective students and their families to get a first-hand idea of everything we have to offer. Tours can be booked by calling the school office on 03 97585022 or through Trybooking

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
