Transition Year 6 into Year 7

Year 6 into 7 Transition Welcome

Ballina Coast High School is excited to welcome our new cohort of young aspiring students. We are looking forward to being a part of their educational journey over the next 6 years of their schooling. Students will participate in a variety of educational experiences and continue to develop their lifelong learning habits as they navigate high school. They will create relationships with friends and teachers that we hope will last a lifetime. We are here to support them and grow together on this journey. 

We have placed a variety of information below to help answer questions regarding transition; what is needed, where can I get it etc. We will continue to add additional information and endeavour to communicate updates to ensure a smooth transition process.

If you have any questions or require further clarification please contact the school on 6681 0100.

Kind Regards,

Mr Lachlan Klose - Deputy Principal
