Years 7 and 8
Our motto for this stage is “Grow, explore, discover and enjoy”.
This has been chosen to encapsulate the key aspects of life in Years 7 and 8 at William Carey Christian School, which is a time of growing – physically, mentally and spiritually.
It is often a time of new experiences, new teachers and new rules, it is also a period of adjustment from Primary School. Those continuing on from Year 6 at William Carey will have participated in a transition day towards the end of Year 6 in order to experience some of the new and interesting High School subjects. We want Year 7 and 8 students to get a taste of what each subject entails and to see that the curriculum gives them a smorgasbord of learning areas to explore and see what they like and where their interests may lie down the track.
Year 7 students who are new to William Carey are warmly welcomed into the fold. All High School students begin each day with a Pastoral Care teacher and a small group of boys or girls – during this time, the teacher marks the roll, hands out any notes and spends time discussing any issues that students may bring up.
Stage 4 is an exciting and challenging time that often sees the development of new friendships and the exploration of new educational experiences.
