In readiness for enrolment paperwork being sent out to families, please see the residential requirements for enrolment each family will need to provide to the College to ensure address verification of your child’s enrolment for 2023. If you have any queries regarding the address requirements please contact the College.
Grade Six into Year Seven is a very exciting time for students and their families. At Elisabeth Murdoch College, we follow the Department of Education and Training statewide transition program.
By holding an open night in late Term one and numerous tours in both Terms one and Term two (conducted by our principal and transition teams), we hope families will be as informed as possible about our college and what we can offer for every student.
We encourage families to attend College tours to see how our college operates on a normal school day. We also encourage families to bring along their children so they can see what school life is like at Elisabeth Murdoch College.
Most of the transition for Year 6 to 7 in 2023 is handled by your primary school. Your primary school will distribute forms to families in early Term two. This important documentation is where parents will select their secondary school of choice for 2023.
We encourage families to discuss any queries they may have with the transition process with their Grade six teacher or primary school transition co-ordinator.
