Year 7 Parent Transition Evening

We are looking forward to welcoming our 2017 Year 7 parents to the Transition Evening on Thursday 10th November. Parents will learn about life in Year 7 at Avila College from students and staff and have a chance to meet and get to know other parents with girls starting in the new year 

Starting secondary school is an exciting, yet sometimes daunting step in a student's education journey.

Avila College has a number of systems in place to help our new Year 7 students settle in:

  • the Avila Experience visit in term three and Year 7 Orientation Day help students become familiar with the school, routines and meet other students.
  • Year 10 peer helpers welcome and support Year 7 students on their first day at school
  • The Year 7 camp, held in term 1, provides an opprtunity to meet other students in a different environment
  • Friendship skills are explicitly taught in the Year 7 Living and Values Program
  • The Director of Pastoral Care liaises with grade 6 teachers to gain an understanding of each individual student

At Avila College students also have access to:

  • Counsellors
  • Educational Psychologist
  • Learning Support Staff
  • Pathways Co-ordinator
  • Health Centre

If you would like more information on Avila College's transition program, or starting Year 7 at Avila College, please contact our Transition Coordinator, Phone: 9831 9600 or Year 7 Coordinator Phone: 9831 9600
