Transition from Primary School
Make the best possible start
At Adelaide Botanic High School we know the move from Primary School to Secondary School is a significant milestone and so supporting students and families make the best possible start at Adelaide Botanic High School drives our successful Primary – Secondary School Transition Program.
Moving to a new school can be both an exciting and challenging time for students and parents. In recognition of this, the transition program has been specifically designed to make students feel known and welcomed as quickly as possible. With tailored events and structures, we are confident that many of the anxieties associated with starting secondary school are alleviated as students and families are provided with opportunities to connect to the school community and prepare them for what awaits at ABHS.Watch Video
