A Smooth Transition To Year 7 At Whitsunday Christian College

At Whitsunday Christian College their vision is to see students develop as life-long learners of faith, character and purpose, achieving personal excellence and cultivating community through service. 

They seek to educate the whole person, with a focus on the head, the hands and the heart.

They encourage student to have strong minds, develop practical skills and cultivate character, instilling Christian values.

Mrs Kylie Langshore the College Principal believes, “Middle School is an important phase of learning and development for our young people from Years 7 - 10.”

“It is a time when they discover more about who they are, what they enjoy and what they are good at.”

In Years 7 and 8, students study core subjects and explore a range of additional subjects.

In Year 9, while continuing study in core subjects, students select electives to explore. In doing so, they commence their learning pathway which will ultimately lead into Senior Secondary and beyond.

For families desiring a values-based Christian education in a community that fosters character growth, academic excellence and a supportive environment for Secondary education, Whitsunday Christian College invites you to the Year 7 Twilight Tour.

The Year 7 Twilight Tour which will be held on Wednesday 24th July from 5pm – 7pm. This is an opportunity for parents and children to experience Secondary School and gain an insight into the different learning structures and subjects on offer.

School tours will be held in small groups and operate from 5pm – 6.30pm.

Students will engage in subject specific experiences relevant to Secondary School life.

Come along and meet the Leadership Team, Secondary teachers and students and share in a free sausage sizzle.  

To conclude, at 6.30pm, an information session will be held in the Hall for all families to discuss important aspects of Year 7 in 2025.

All enrolled students for 2025, are then invited to the Year 7 Step Up day which is due to take place in October.

Students will experience and follow a Secondary timetable to prepare them for transition from Primary to Secondary school, moving through a range of different specialist subjects while meeting staff and students.
