Year 7 Transition

Parents of Students in Year 6 will be sent information about Transition so that they and their child can decide on their preferences for secondary school.

Students who are considering independent schools for their secondary education will need to make arrangements with those schools to understand their enrolment process, as it falls outside the government school process. It is helpful if you could let your learning community teachers know if you are planning on enrolling in a private independent school.

DET secondary school preference forms for state government schools, as well as detailed information, will be distributed to all Year 6 students on Wednesday 22 April, 2020, via email. Families  will complete the Application form electronically and it must be returned to Brunswick East Primary School by Friday 29 May, 2020 by return email.

Please don’t bring the form in to the school office! However, if you have trouble returning the form electronically please ring the office on 9387 3361 and we will arrange for you to send it in or deliver it to us.

Some local secondary schools to consider:

Parents and students should make contact with schools they may be interested and find out  information about the schools and visit their websites. Many students will have already been to visit the secondary schools during term 1.

At this point-in-time we are unsure about the Transition Program for the rest of the year. We will let you know what is available as soon as these decisions are made.
