Student Transition

A focus on supported transition experiences.

True to our aspiration of providing individualised student pathways, the transition experiences will ensure every student will have the best possible start to the school year.

During Term 2 2022 we held a series of Immersion Days for Year 6 students from St Joseph’s Barmera, Our Lady of the River, St Albert’s Primary School and St Joseph’s Renmark, as well as students from various Riverland government primary schools.

Each of the Year 6 students will have an opportunity to attend a second Immersion Day during Term 3.  More formalised Transition Days will be held for students during Term 4.

An invitation is extended to any family, considering their child’s secondary education, to attend the next Immersion Day and Term 4 Transition Days. There is no obligation for the child to enrol, they can simply come along an experience what the College has to offer.

The transition program is designed to support the partnership between our students, teachers, and families in setting up for success in 2023. The immersion and transition days enable:

  • students from across the Riverland to meet each other prior the 2023 school year;
  • students to meet some of their teachers, and for teachers to begin to form relationships with their new students;
  • the College to gain an understanding of the specific learning and wellbeing needs of each student;
  • students to gain some experience in what their learning will look like at the College.

In addition to the transition program, the College partners closely with students, families, and their current schools to ensure we have as much insight as possible around the specific needs of each student.
