Catholic schools and Catholic Education Services have been working hard for more than three years to prepare for the introduction of Year 7 to secondary, and now we’re ready!
In 2015, Year 7 will become part of secondary schools in all school sectors throughout Queensland.
The Cairns Diocese’s secondary colleges are ready to welcome both Years 7 and 8 next year.
Catholic Education continues to work with Principals, school communities and the State Government to ensure this major reform will be successfully delivered with the interests of students, teachers, staff and their families paramount. New buildings, facilities, curriculum and pastoral plans are in place to ensure the first group of year 7s have a smooth transition from the primary to the secondary environment.
More than $11 million has been invested in construction at our secondary colleges to accommodate this historic move and most of the projects are now complete.
