The transition from primary to secondary schooling for many students and their parents can be an exciting but somewhat nervous time. To ease any concerns, Mount Scopus offers various opportunities to introduce students to the College and their potential future classmates in an effort to ensure families are comfortable with the decision they make about the next stage of schooling.
The following components are part of the enrolment process for students entering into Year 7.
Parent information evening with the College Principal, and the Deputy Principals responsible for Secondary, and for the Alter Family School of Jewish Studies and Ivrit. They will discuss the College ethos, the curriculum as well as extra-curricular programs and activities, both Jewish and secular, that are on offer.
Year 7 Scopus Experience day visit offers students the opportunity to see and experience the College whilst getting to know other children who are also interested in moving to Scopus for Year 7 in the same year.
Individual day visits place the visitors in Year 6 with their Scopus counterparts offering the opportunity to experience the standard of learning alongside developing or consolidating social connections.
The transition day late in Year 6 brings in all new Year 7 starters alongside the current Year 6 students at Mount Scopus for a final orientation and integration opportunity prior to the start of Year 7.
The process ensures that our new Year 7 students have had multiple exposure opportunities to the campus and other students which aids a smooth transition into the College at the start of secondary school.
