To help your young person make the transition to high school, the Para Hills High School transition team will be holding parent information sessions for parents of incoming year 6 and 7 students on Tuesday 23 November.

These sessions provide an opportunity for our staff to connect with families who have not had an enrolment interview or families who still have questions about their young person’s enrolment.

Our staff will also use these sessions to collect any outstanding paperwork, conduct school tours and arrange additional transition visits for students who need it.

To book your place, complete the registration form here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TransitionParentInfoSession 

Transition days: 2 - 3 December 2021

Scheduled transition days for 2021 will take place in week 8, term 4 on Thursday 2 and Friday 3 December 2021. 

These transition days will give new students the opportunity to experience life at Para Hills High School and ask any questions they may have. On Thursday 2 December, students will be welcomed and organised into their pastoral care classes. Each class will then have a session with their pastoral care teacher, who will go through the school rules and procedures and take students on a tour of the school. During the day all students will have their ID photos taken and will participate in lessons in a variety of subjects.

On Friday 3 December, Para Hills High School has organised an afternoon of fun for all students in celebration of International Day for People with Disability. More information on this event is included in the International Day for People with a Disability consent form.
