Transition Program

Transition from Year 6 to Year 7


Initially, your child's primary school will manage the transition from Grade 6 to Year 7.

From the first week of Term 2, all Primary Schools should have distributed to the parents of Year 6 children information relating to secondary education and an 'Application for Year 7 Placement' form. If you would like your child to attend Elwood College, it is important that you list us as your first preference.

Complete this form, sign it, and return to your child's primary school by the due date.

Every effort is made to consider all applications for Year 7, however with high demand for enrolments at Elwood College, careful thought should be given in your remaining preferences if you permanent address is outside of our neighbourhood boundaries.

Placement Offers

Placement offers will be communicated via your child's primary school in July. After this point, we will send information about how to accept the placement offer to those families of students offered a place for Year 7. This step will also require families to provide supporting documentation to verify their permanent residential address.
