You may be aware that in 2015 the South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools endorsed a move towards shifting Year 7 from primary to secondary settings.
Catholic Education South Australia (CESA) is now implementing that decision and most Catholic schools in South Australia will make this change in 2019.
What does this mean?
For most schools, Year 6 will become the final year of primary schooling. Year 7 will become the first year of secondary schooling.
Why move Year 7 to Secondary?
It’s primarily about meeting the learning, social and emotional needs of young people across all Catholic Schools.
It is also about strengthening pathways from primary to secondary schools across Catholic Education.
Offering a consistent entry into secondary school at Year 7 makes it easier for students to explore and access all options. We believe these changes will significantly enhance educational outcomes.
Benefits for the students;
The education and wellbeing of the students is our focus, and relies on a seamless transition from Primary school.
