Have your say on how year 7 will move from primary school to high school in regional South Australia.
Year 7 will be taught in all public high schools from term 1, 2022.
The State Government understands that introducing year 7 to high school in the regional setting will require special consideration, and they want to hear from communities in regional South Australia about the opportunities and challenges they anticipate.
Under the proposed approach, some regional primary schools would continue to offer year 7, while all regional high schools would introduce year 7 (so that year 7 is offered concurrently in both settings).
This option is available for a limited period of 3 years (2022-2024) at the following Eyre Peninsula schools which are located more than 20km from its nearest area or high school: Koonibba Aboriginal School, Lake Wangary Primary School, Penong Primary School, Port Neill Primary School, and Ungarra Primary School.
Your feedback is sought on the three-year plan to support families to make the transition.
Your feedback can also be provided online or by email. Closing date Tuesday 3 September 2019
