St Albans Secondary College’s Year 7 Transition Program aims to ensure that students feel happy, secure and confident as they make the transition from primary to secondary education. 

At St Albans Secondary College, we understand that while starting secondary school can be an exciting milestone, the move from primary to secondary school can also be a daunting and challenging experience for some students.

Our Transition Program is designed to ensure that students develop positive relationships with both their teachers and peers, extend their knowledge of secondary school, build resilience, develop their personal confidence, feel connected to the College and generally settle in to secondary school life.

*Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions, there may be some changes to our usual Transition Program.

Parents are  welcome to book a personal tour of the College by appointment with the Transition Team (temporarily unavailable).

Week 2 – How to make new friends at a new school?

It can be scary starting a new school, a new class and having no friends to start your first day. 

Check out this website which helps you with good illustrations on how to make a friend. 

Top tips front the Wellbeing Team: 

  1. Smile and say hello to your class students
  2. Ask how someone is going  when doing an activity together
  3. Find things in common by asking questions (e.g, what music do they like?)
