Opportunity Through Learning

Year 7

Camp

Year 7 camp is a great opportunity for the cohort to come together, have fun and consolidate their transition into high school. The camp is a huge event, with students travelling up to Tea Garden's Great Aussie Bush Camp for three nights. Students partake in a variety of activities that develop their confidence and their ability to work within a team.

Vaccination

Free vaccines, for all Year 7 students

Teams of specially trained registered nurses will be visiting your child's school during Year 7 to offer free vaccinations against serious vaccine preventable diseases.

Vaccines include:

  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine (3 doses)
  • Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis (dTpa) vaccine (1 dose)
  • Varicella (chickenpox) vaccine (1 dose)

These vaccines are only provided free whilst your child is in Year 7.

What do you need to do?

  • Read Year 7 vaccination information kit which will be distributed by your school at the beginning of the school year
  • Check your child's vaccination records for varicella vaccine: all students should receive 1 dose unless the vaccine has been given before or your child has had the chickenpox disease
  • Complete and sign the consent form (make sure you sign for each vaccine your child requires)
  • Return the signed consent form to your child to return to school, as soon as possible
  • Discuss the importance of vaccinations with your child
  • Ensure your child has breakfast on the morning of vaccination
  • If your child is absent from school on vaccination day catch-up vaccinations will be provide at school throughout the year
