We were delighted recently to welcome our 2023 Year 7 students to Preshil’s Blackhall Kalimna (BK) Campus; the home away from home for our Year 7 to 12 students and staff. This Meet the Teachers Event was a wonderful opportunity to meet and hear from the teachers who will be working with the Year 7 students in 2023.
We heard from Preshil’s Principal Josh Brody, the Head of Campus (Blackhall Kalimna) Karoline Kuti, the Year 7 Coordinator Katherine Girbau and all of our Year 7 teaching and subject specialists.
It was a fantastic evening full of curiosity and excitement, although some of us couldn’t keep awake! Pictured is Charlie the School Dog.
We make every effort to ensure that our students have everything they need to support a smooth transition to Year 7. Part of this involves a tailored transition and orientation program that is designed to gently ease our students into the rigour of Year 7.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Program (MYP) invigorates the teaching and learning culture in Years 7 to 10 at Preshil. Our students are engaged, physically active and supported by outstanding teachers who are committed to holistic learning and the success of each individual student. The School is well-structured, well-resourced and truly innovative.
We are proud of the program we have developed at Blackhall Kalimna and confident that it provides a thoughtful, contemporary and challenging approach to secondary education that is attracting considerable interest from the broader public and families beyond Preshil. They see the International Baccalaureate in a progressive setting as an outstanding preparation for their children to enter post-school destinations, confident they have the skills required to carve out their own versions of success.
We look forward to seeing our 2023 Year 7 families for the next events:
Parent Information Evening on Tuesday 8 November 2022 at 6.00pm
We will be holding a parent information evening on Tuesday 8 November 2022 from 6.00pm to 7.00pm in the Blackhall Kalimna Library that will provide further explanation of our Year 7 program and how you can help your child prepare for this exciting time.
Student Orientation and Transition Day on Wednesday 16 November 2022
In addition, the 2023 Year 7 students will be joining the campus cohort on Wednesday 16 November 2022 for their Orientation and Transition Day. As we approach this event we will share more information about what this day will look like.
Welcome BBQ on Wednesday 16 November 2022 at 6.00pm
On the same day, parents are invited to bring their families to a celebratory BBQ in the evening, 6pm, with the current Year 7 families. If you have not already toured the Secondary School, we invite you to please contact Nerel Ezra, Registrar, to make a time for a personal tour.
