Starting form this school year, year 6 will be the last year of primary school and year 7 will be the first year of high school.
Year 7 is already part of high school across the country so this move will bring South Australia in line with other states and territories, as well as other education systems in our state.
If your child is in 6 at Thorndon Park Primary this year, they will graduate from primary school this year. We want to assure you that our students will experience a positive and successful transition from primary to high school. To ensure the experience is memorable, we are considering how leadership opportunities, seniors jumpers, graduation ceremonies and participation in activities will include all year 6 students.
Registration of interest for secondary school in 2024 starts at the beginning of term 2, 1 May 2023 and closes on 26 May 2023. The registration process is an online application which is managed by the primary school. Families will receive a registration of interest form and information by email. It is essential that we have a current email address for both parents and the correct residential address for students. If families have any questions regarding the process or need to update any information, please contact Julie Powell on Julie.Powell951@schools.sa.edu.au
