The nurturing and caring environment of the junior sub-school allows for a smooth transition from primary school to secondary school. We have a small team of dedicated teachers in the junior school who will often teach students for multiple subjects, allowing us to understand our students learning and wellbeing needs. We run a specialised Orientation Program in the first week of Year 7 to ensure our new students at the college feel comfortable, confident and a part of the Westall community.
At Westall Secondary College we acknowledge the importance of developing students skills in their social and emotionally wellbeing. In the Junior School, along with the Year 7 and 8 curriculum we integrate a range of workshops and incursions that focus on fundamental aspects of a young person’s life. Key topics include: cyber-safety, resilience, empathy, mindfulness, gratitude and emotional literacy.
