At Kelso High we see the transition from primary school to secondary school as a significant step and it is essential that we give students an opportunity to move gradually through this change. Our iLearn program is central to providing quality transition for Year 6 students intending on enrolling at the school.
Our transition program for year 6 students comprises:
iLearn Transition Program (ongoing)
An Orientation Night held in early Term 2
A second Orientation Night held in Term 4
A full day Orientation Day held in early December
The program is open to students from our feeder primary schools as well as non-government schools. The iLearn Transition Program involves students visiting the campus once a term to participate in interactive lessons that allow them to become familiar with staff, students and facilities as well as experience subject areas that are offered in the Kelso curriculum.
As outlined in the department’s enrolment policy, our school may accept enrolments from outside our local enrolment area if places are available.
We will assess applications for non-local enrolment on a case-by-case basis.
Distance education is an equity program for students who are geographically isolated or whose individual circumstances prevent them from regularly attending school. Students must meet one of the conditions in the Distance Education Enrolment Procedures to be eligible to access this program as a full-time student.
Distance education schools also provide single subjects for students in Years 9 to 12 to enhance curriculum choice. Please contact us for details.
