Grade 7 Transition Information

Information Evening

Due to current Covid-19 restrictions schools are not permitted to host large adult gatherings. As an alternative to our Information Evening we have engaged Tasman Digital to produce a Burnie High School information video.

Burnie High School is excited to provide you with the details of our 2020 Grade 6 to Grade 7 transition program. We know that the transition from primary school to high school is a time that students anticipate with nervous excitement. In the coming months your child will get to know key Burnie High School staff and student leaders, and be provided with a number of opportunities to  experience the School’s learning programs.

Transition Coordinators Mr Kamil Douglas & Mr Daniel Warsing along with Assistant Principals Mr James Thompson & Mrs Fiona Gaby have already visited your child’s classroom as an introduction to the transition process, and a tour of Burnie High School will occur later in Term 3.
