Year 7's to High School

16/07/2014

Flying Start – Year 7 to High School

Exciting changes await our Year 6 and 7 students this year, as 2014 marks the final year that Year 7 will be a part of primary school in Queensland. Next year, our current Year 6 students will become the first group of Year 7 students in high school.

To provide a smooth transition we are supporting students and parents, and working with Pittsworth State High School to ensure the move is a great success.

As a result of the introduction of the Prep year, almost half of our current Year 6 students will turn 13 in 2015 and will be in their eighth year of school, which is traditionally the right time to start high school. Our students will have greater access to specialist teachers and resources in high school, such as science teachers and labs, which will open up new and exciting educational opportunities.

Over the coming weeks and months we’ll be sharing more information with you, to help you and your child prepare for the move to high school.             

Year 7 and 8 Enrolment Interviews at Pittsworth State High School commence today, 16 July and conclude on 8 August.  Please take a look in the enrolment pack from PSHS and access the online booking service called SOBS to secure your booking time.  If you have any problems accessing the on-line service please contact Pittsworth State High School on 4619 8111.

We are confident that all of our students will experience a smooth and successful transition to high school. If you would like more information on the move of Year 7 to high school, you can also visit
