School Years - Year 7 2019



Moving into year 7 can be an exciting time in a students' education. New friends, new teachers, a larger school, and more subject choice are just a few of the changes. It can be a daunting time for some students. It is important that students find their feet quickly when attending high school, making new friends and settling into class and a routine helps alleviate any anxiety that students may feel when starting out. Former students are here to help.

Jumpstart Program


Jumpstart at MHS is an extensive transition program for students who require extra support when transitioning to High School. The program is divided into two groups and focuses on school routines, daily organisation and support systems in the school. This program allows students to familiarise themselves with staff, Peer Support students and support staff such as Year Advisor, Student Support Officer, Learning and Support Teachers, Deputies and Head Teacher Wellbeing. Students can only be nominated by their teachers for participation in this program. Parents are asked to provide transportation to and from Maitland High School on Jumpstart days.
