When: Thursday 23 May at 7pm
Where: Dove Theatre, Kristin School, Gate 2, 390 Albany Highway, Albany

Presenters and topics to be covered:

  • Dave Scott, Principal, Kristin Middle School: An overview of Kristin’s expertise in middle schooling, and the dynamic, diverse and unique Year 9 curriculum programme 
  • Rob Taylor, Director of Sport, Kristin School: Sport opportunities at Kristin
  • Kate Pollard, Assistant Principal, Kristin Middle School: Student wellbeing, dean support and teacher coaching
  • Nick Duirs, Head of Visual & Performing Arts Faculty: Performing Arts at Kristin

From Dave Scott, Middle School Principal:

"We believe that Year 9 at Kristin helps students by welcoming them into the Kristin community and offering them a full year to establish themselves before making positive transitions to Year 10, ready for the challenges of the final year of Middle School and the fantastic opportunities that brings. It also equips each student with the skills and friendships to face the future with confidence and excitement.  However, please do not take my word for it, come and see for yourself.

I look forward to telling you more on Thursday 23 May."

We’ll also show a few videos of Kristin School Year 9 students in action and you’re welcome to stay for light refreshments afterwards.
