Headstart is a transition week at the end of Term 4 that provides Grade 6 students with an opportunity to experience a week as a Year 7 student. The aim of HEADSTART is to ensure students questions are answered before the holidays and ensure students head off into the Christmas holidays feeling confident, positive and excited about starting their Year 7 year.
Students will participate in a learning program in their CARE class for the following year to ensure they develop peer relationships. Students will get to meet a wide variety of teachers from WMYC to commence building strong and positive learning relationships. Part of the HEADSTART program is timetable and map reading activities so students know where their classes will be the following year. Students will experience their full timetable of classes over the duration of the week. HEADSTART is always an engaging and positive week that excites all students about transitioning from Grade 6 into Year 7.
