Year 6 is the final year of primary school and an exciting time as students can take a leadership role in our school. We work together with high schools to assist our Year 6 students to have a successful start to high school.
There are great opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular activities. These include competitions, exhibitions, sport, performances and special events. Student leadership programs provide many activities that broaden your child’s experience at school.
Selective high school test
This year applicants can sit for the selective high school placement test if they are interested in applying for entry to a selective high school. The test has reading, writing, mathematics and general ability components.
