Hello and welcome to Wangaratta High School’s Year 7 transition webpage. Firstly thank you for choosing Wangaratta High School for your child. This is an exciting time for families but we also understand it is a significant change for students and can be a challenging time for parents and carers too.

 

The first year at High School is a big step in a child’s journey to adulthood and will bring exciting opportunities. To support this process and to make sure the transition to Wangaratta High School is smooth this webpage contains all the information you need to get started including all the items your student will need like the uniform, books and technology as well as information about the school values, funding support, Year 7 camp, school buses and much more.
