Wyndham Central College recognises the importance of developing young people in education so they can to contribute to society positively.
As educators, we have a professional responsibility to work collaboratively with our community primary schools and ensure the transition from primary to secondary school is a smooth one for both the student and their families. Our vision at Wyndham Central College is to ensure successful transition is a meaningful change occurring not only from primary to secondary school but by supporting its existing student’s transition from one-year level to another.
Transition to secondary school is not a point-in-time event, but rather an experience that can extend beyond the last two years of primary school and the first two years of secondary school. This movement from one set of circumstances to another with changes to the environment, relationships, behaviour, routines, roles and expectations can be at times overwhelming. It is with this in mind that we are continuously working towards improving our processes and assisting families by providing ongoing up to date information about our school and the transition process.
The State wide orientation day is on the 7th of December 2021. Due to the uncertainty of this year, if this cannot go ahead, we do have a contingency plan. On the orientation day, students will get to meet their tutor teachers and other students in their class, complete a tour of the College and a range of ‘get to know you’ activities so that all students can begin making positive connections. On the first day of school Monday 31st January 2022, students will continue with these activities in our ‘Planning for Success’ day.
Enrolment packs will be given to students when our College transition team visits primary schools in the first two weeks of term 4. If these visits are not able to occur, enrolment packs will be emailed to families. Should you require assistance in completing these forms please contact our Administration Office on 9741 4911 to arrange an appointment. All enrolment documents must be returned to the school no later than the 7th of December, 2021. Please ensure all documentation is return to ensure your child is enrolled.
