As part of the strong transitioning program for our students, Belle Vue students are annually invited to visit Balwyn High School. All grade 6 students are invited to Balwyn High regardless of the high school they will be going to. This approach aims to familiarise our students with a high school environment, learn about what support structures high schools have to assist students and the opportunities they will experience.
Past Belle Vue students also come and address the current students and are there to answer any questions they may have. This year, students experienced a science lesson in the fantastic science lab facilities that Balwyn High have to offer. This day is a significant part of ensuring students feel comfortable with their transition to high school.Read More »
