Transition program

At Bathurst High we see the transition from primary school to secondary school as a significant step and it is essential that we give students an opportunity to move gradually through this change. Our iXplore program is central to providing quality transition for Year 6 students intending on enrolling at the school.

Our transition program for Year 6 students comprises:

  • iXplore Transition Program 
  • An Orientation Night held in Term 1 
  • A second Orientation Night held in Term 4 
  • A full day Orientation Day held late November

The program is open to students from our feeder primary schools as well as non-government schools. The iXplore Transition Program involves students visiting the campus once a term to participate in interactive lessons that allow them to become familiar with staff, students and facilities as well as experience subject areas that are offered in the Bathurst High curriculum.
