Year 7

2019 Handbook

Bentleigh Secondary College Year 7 students study core subjects of English, Maths, Humanities, Science, Physical Education/Health, LOTE and sport. Electives are offered in Art, Information Technology, Food, Textiles, Wood Technologies, Music and Drama.


The elective system is scaffolded to ensure middle school students experience all options before specialising in their subject selections.


Year 7 Camp:


The Year 7 transition camp will be held early in Term 1. The camp is held near Foster, and is an excellent opportunity for students and staff to get to know each other, build positive relationships and understand the importance of everyone working co-operatively. 

Year 7 Peer Support:

The Peer Support program involves Year 10 leaders working with groups of Year 7 students to assist them with their transition to secondary college. Year 10 students lead activities that promote connectedness and foster the building of positive relationships between Year 7 students. In addition to these benefits, the program also allows Year 7 students to connect with Senior School students.

Year 7 Mindfulness Meditation: 

As part of the college’s focus on Mindfulness Meditation, all Year 7 students participate in a program that introduces them to the practice. The Meditation and Indigenous Cultural Centre, located within the college grounds, provides the perfect environment for Year 7 students to engage in meditation, and learn how to improve their focus and better manage their emotions.

Year 7 Home Group Support:

All students at Bentleigh Secondary College begin their school day by meeting in their home group. Each class has their own home group teacher, who works closely with them to support their academic progress and wellbeing. All Year 7 classes are allocated a home group teacher who also teaches them for at least one other class.
