Welcome to Year 7 at Armidale High School!
At Armidale High School we provide ongoing support for all of our students from Year 7 through to Year 12. Each year group has a Year Advisor who follows the cohort through from transition to HSC. The 2018 Advisor for the Year 7 group is Mrs Raelene Dyall.
Starting high school is a time of new experiences as your child adjusts to a new school, makes new friends and gets used to having different teachers and classrooms for each subject.
These resources can help with the transition to high school
There are great opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular activities. These include competitions, exhibitions, sport, performances and special events.
Year 7 students sit the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) test in May. There are five tests covering numeracy, reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar. Year 7 is the first time students use a calculator in one of the numeracy tests.
The results of the NAPLAN test can help teachers and parents meet the individual literacy and numeracy needs of students. You will receive a report of your child's achievement in the NAPLAN test.
