Preparing for Year 7 2023
Head Start to High School is a transition to high school program that is unique to Gymea Technology High School. For Gymea, it has proven to better prepare students, emotionally, socially and academically for high school, while also building that proud excitement as we begin our partnership in the high school journey of your child.
This year has brought challenges to everyone and as a result of necessary restrictions in schools, we have re-designed the delivery of Head Start to connect with families and students in preparation for a successful start to Year 7. The mode of delivery may come back on site for families this year but the information below identifies the program in a remote context.
The program will be delivered online through a designated site to support our families for our incoming year 7. You will receive weekly updates to link you into the site to view videos, screencasts, virtual classroom tours as well as imagery to build that familiarity with Gymea to support your child in Year 7.
Head Start to High School In-School Workshops
Subject to restrictions and what is allowed on site, our incoming Year 7 2023 students will have the opportunity to join us for face to face Head Start workshops at school. For this part of our Head Start program, students will have the opportunity to participate in exciting face to face lessons delivered by our teachers and volunteer students as well as the unique chance to forge new friendships with other Year 7 students starting at Gymea next year.
The program for our Head Start afternoon Workshops for students is outlined below:
