The Year 7 Program provides a smooth transition from primary school into the secondary school environment. Students form strong relationships with key Year 7 teachers who become the main point of contact for families. As part of the transition process, Year 7 students have their own area of the College for core classes, lockers, toilets and staff offices. Students are supported in exploring the College grounds through Arts & Technology classes, Physical Education and a fortnightly Alternative Education Program.
LEEP (Learning, Enrichment and Extension Program).
A new program for 2017 in Year 7, the LEEP is for highly able students at Monivae College based on the principles of curriculum enrichment and extension and developing their outstanding potential.
Full program information is available from the LEEP page.
