Koonung Secondary College runs a pastoral care program called Positive Classrooms for students in Years 7 to 9
The course is designed around the Respectful Relations program and focuses on encouraging our students to maximise their learning opportunities by enabling them to feel safe, comfortable and valued.
Year 7 is a time of transition and to ensure it is smooth and exciting, Koonung Secondary College runs an extensive transition program. Primary schools are consulted about the new students, parents are able to give their input and the new students visit Koonung to complete fun and informative activities. On the Orientation Day, students complete a specially designed program with the assistance of their mentors, who are only too ready and willing to help them find their feet. It isn't long before students feel comfortably connected to their new school.
The Pathways program at Year 10 provides students with the opportunity to develop an awareness of the study and career options available to them.
