Enrolment applications for Year 7 are due at the end of May each year. All primary schools in our region are notified of our transition dates in Term 1 and invitations are sent for them to participate in this transition process.
For families applying for Year 7 placements we require you to:
1. Lodge an enrolment application by the end of May
2. Attend an enrolment interview with a member of the leadership team
3. Provide copies of recent reports, NAPLAN results and the child’s Birth Certificate
4. Pay an Enrolment Deposit of $150 on acceptance of the Placement Offer.
Nagle College provides a number of opportunities for families to be informed and involved in the transition from primary to secondary school. These include:
· Talk and Walk Tours take place most Monday mornings at 9.00 am. Tours take approximately 75 minutes and cover all learning areas at the College. They are a great introduction to Nagle College with opportunities to see classes in action. Bookings are required for these tours.
· Transition Visits are offered to all primary schools in our region and involve staff from our Junior School visiting primary schools to speak to current Year 5 and 6 students about their choices for secondary school. During these visits one or two of our current Year 7 students will accompany staff to their previous primary school to speak about their transition experience to Nagle College.
· Nagle Expo takes place early in Term 2. All primary schools in our region are invited to send their Year 5 and 6 students to Nagle for a half day of timetabled activities. Transport is provided by Nagle College from the primary school to Nagle and return. The Expo is an excellent opportunity for students to take part in practical classes and do a tour with a current Year 9 student.
· Nagle College Open Night takes place the second Wednesday of May each year. The evening is aimed at past, present and prospective families, offering them a chance to visit the school and see the various learning areas in action. The evening runs from 4.30 to 8.00 pm and includes scheduled information sessions for new families, interactive displays and demonstrations, show bags for Year 6 students, and a whole lot more for the whole family.
· Enrolment interviews are conducted by our Leadership Team early in Term 3, with Placement Offers sent once these are concluded, usually late July/early August.
· Two Information Evenings are conducted in August for parents of students enrolling for Year 7 at Nagle College. One evening is held here at Nagle College with a second held the following week at St Brendan’s Primary School in Lakes Entrance.
