Transition Arrangements

We understand that the transition from primary to secondary education can be both an exciting and a challenging process for both students and parents.

Our transition arrangements are carefully planned to ensure that students are ready for a successful and enjoyable Year 7. If you have any questions regarding transition, at any stage of the process, please do not hesitate to ask. Staff are always available to answer questions at the various events or you can email the school at any time.

The Garibaldi School is increasingly popular and has become the school of first choice for students from a wide range of primary schools including our feeder primary schools as well as out-of-catchment schools.

Students with Special Educational Needs may have additional visits.
