Year 6/7/8 Transition

Moving from primary to secondary schooling is a symbolic act that we as parents celebrate, but sometimes in a bittersweet way. We recognise the child we have known is changing and that time will now speed up.

Our role as an R-12 college, is to make transition seamless, therefore comfortable enough so that by the time year 7/8 arrives, students feel they know the secondary campus and their sense of 'belonging' is already beginning to establish a feeling of ease.

Transition Visits

Students are given the opportunity to engage in lessons with the current staff and students at the Saint John's Campus.  These are outlined below for students moving into year 7 and 8.  Students who would like to join Samaritan College - Saint john's Campus in any other level are welcome to discuss transition visits with a member of the Campus Leadership Team.
