Yarram Secondary College held the first of four transition sessions for Primary School students from Yarram, St Marys, Alberton, Devon North, Woodside and Gormandale last Friday.
For the first part of their transition, students spent a full day at the college. The program will continue with the grade 6 students spending half of the next three Fridays here as well. To finish the transition process, students will attend the first 3 days of headstart in early December.
Whilst at the secondary college, the primary students attended a workshop called Venomwise, where they heard about snakes, lizards, dingoes and other indigenous creatures. They also participated in a workshop with the Reach Foundation titled “Rookies” where they learnt about transition into a bigger school.
The students attended classes in cooking, woodwork and PE and also took part in an “Amazing Race” finding notices around the school grounds and helping them navigate around all the classrooms and buildings.
The students were very excited about their first day at Yarram Secondary College, with one girl declaring “It’s the best day ever.”
