Year 7, 2024

Transitioning to high school marks a significant step in your young person's educational journey. Our school, compared to primary school, may seem larger at first, and it's natural for them to feel a bit uncertain. However, this transition also brings forth exciting opportunities and a wider range of subjects to explore.

At Ku-ring-gai High School, we pride ourselves on fostering a sense of community where each student's uniqueness and contributions are valued. We are dedicated to providing an exceptional, student-centered education with a strong emphasis on preparing students for the future.

Ku-ring-gai High School places a strong emphasis on the wellbeing of both students and staff. We've implemented highly effective programs to support our students in their development. Our dedicated teachers and staff are committed to fostering an environment where all our students can connect, succeed, and thrive.

To assist students and parents/caregivers in navigating this transition to high school, Ku-ring-gai High School has designed a comprehensive transition program, which includes the following key elements:

Orientation Day, will be held on Tuesday 28 November, 2023, from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM. It is a chance for students to engage in various activities that will help them become more familiar with their school. We will host a 30-minute parent information session at 9:30 AM, where you can meet our Principal, Year 7 Advisers, and other important staff members. This session will also provide an opportunity for parents/caregivers to ask questions.

While your child participates in activities, parents may consider visiting the uniform shop or enjoying a coffee at one of our local coffee shops.

We open the school year with our Learning Transition Program, starting on Thursday, February 1, 2024, at 9:00 am. This program is designed to help students ease into their new high school environment and get acquainted with the exciting academic journey ahead.

We look forward to officially welcoming Year 7, 2024 to Ku-ring-gai High School.
