Growing Up At WAC
Transition at Wollondilly Anglican College, aims to provide a wonderful introduction to the College. From the age of four, students can elect to attend either the two or three day program. Throughout the year, students are gradually incorporated and familiarised with the College through a structured program including “events” such as excursions to the canteen, library, and auditorium.
Kindergarten represents the formal start to education for students. Situated in the Cook building, the expectations introduced in Transition are reinforced and developed. Kindergarten students develop foundational skills to carry them through in their future schooling.
The Junior Years at Wollondilly spans Transition to Year 4. During this time students remain with a single teacher for most of the day where fundamental education skills are developed. Students in these years have access to a wide range of facilities available at the College and are involved in weekly sport and chapel services as well as the opportunity to develop a second language and participate in the creative and performing arts.
The Middle Years at Wollondilly are Years 5 to 8. One of the great strengths of the College is the seamless transition between the Junior and Middle years. Traditionally a time of uncertainty and anxiety, the move from the Junior Years is little more than returning to a familiar environment with familiar friends. In Years 5 and 6, students are part of a transition learning program centered around a core teacher and several specialist teachers. They are less entrenched in one room. Years 7 and 8 provide an opportunity to sample a variety of possible elective subjects to assist with an informed decision for Years 9 and 10.
The Senior Years encompass Years 9 to 12. Students in Years 9 and 10 choose electives from a broad variety of options.
The Collegiate Years at Wollondilly comprise of Years 11 and 12. Surrounded by a new purpose built Senior campus, the Rev John Flynn Collegiate, senior students have the opportunity to work towards their HSC surrounded by state-of-the-art facilities and supported by high quality experienced staff. As Seniors, Year 11 and 12 students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and study patterns, as they develop the skills necessary to balance the workload of the HSC with other areas of their life. The Collegiate years are an important part of preparing students for the future.
