This week we held our Transition Days for Year 6 primary school students joining our Blackburn Central High School family in September 2018.
The primary school students enjoyed an action packed two days, sampling many secondary school lessons such as Art, Drama, Technology, ICT, and Science, as well as the mainstays of Maths and English.
Students also took part in an Anti-Bullying activity created and led by current BCHS students, as well as sitting tests to ascertain which band they will be in from September.
The Year 6 students got to experience our school ethos of community, and also started friendships that will last their entire time at secondary school, and hopefully beyond.
The new starters enjoyed themselves:
“It was fun meeting new friends and getting to know the teachers.”
“I was nervous about starting in September, but I feel better now, because I’ve learned my way around.”
“I’ve enjoyed myself so much, I’m going to come to summer school.”
All new Year 7 students are invited to our FREE Summer School on Monday 23rd, Tuesday 24th, and Wednesday 25th July 2018, from 9:30am till 2:30pm. A free lunch will be provided, and plenty of parking is available when picking up children.
