Our transition program is now well underway for students entering year 7 in 2022. Students in Year 6 take part in a transition program to facilitate a smooth progression to highschool. Students from local primary schools will continue to attend transition days at Riverstone High School and all students will participate in the Orientation Day in term 4.
The Leader In Me
The Leader In Me introduces students to the process of school and personal effectiveness through the principles of leadership and the 7 habits of highly effective teens.
The Leader In Me helps students learn how to become self-reliant, take initiative, plan ahead, set and track goals, do their homework, prioritise their time, manage their emotions, be considerate of others, express their viewpoint persuasively, resolve conflicts, find creative solutions, value differences, and live a balanced life. The process helps students develop the skills and self-confidence they need to lead their lives and succeed in school and beyond.
Habits 1-3 look at winning the private victory and moving from dependence to independence through the development of self – mastery. Habits 4-6 look at winning the Public Victory and sees students moving from independence to interdependence and working with others.
