Year 7 and year 8 enrolment at Berri Regional Secondary College 2022
Transitioning from primary school to high school is a significant milestone in your life.
You will be faced with many new challenges including meeting new people, making new friends and finding your way around a new environment. The experience of transitioning to high school will also come with exciting opportunities for you to grow as a young person through learning, engagement and wellbeing.
The Australian Curriculum, which all South Australian students learn, is designed to be taught in a secondary school setting. Our school employs specialist teachers and facilities such as purpose-built science laboratories and performing arts spaces. We are preparing for year 7 ‘s to high school in 2022 and our transition program for current year 6’s and year 7’s will provide many opportunities for young people to form connections and build confidence before transitioning.
Year 6 and 7 students currently attending local schools in our catchment area, will receive enrolment packs for Berri Regional Secondary College from their Primary School early in term 2. Other students may send an enquiry via the Enrolment Enquiry form on this page or give us a call if you would like to discuss your child and enrolment at Berri Regional Secondary College for 2022.
You are enrolling at a very exciting time as we prepare to become one school at Berri with brand new facilities in 2022. I look forward to working with you through your enrolment and the transition to secondary school. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to talk to me.

Year 7 to High School
The Australian Curriculum is designed to teach students the skills to be confident and creative individuals and become active and informed citizens. It sets the goal for what all students should learn as they progress through their school life.
Students develop knowledge and skills in eight learning areas during Years 8-10.
The Learning Areas are:
- Health and Physical Education (HPE)
- Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS)
- The Arts
In secondary schooling, students are taught by specialist teachers. Towards Year 10, the curriculum is designed so students develop skills for civic, social and economic participation. Students also have opportunities to make choices about their learning and to specialise in areas of interest.
The curriculum assists students to consider pathways for study in senior secondary schooling from a range of academic and vocational options.
The South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE)
A clear objective of the Senior Campus is to allow all of our students to achieve the SACE. Given thoughtful and realistic subject selection and an honest effort we believe that every one of our students can achieve the SACE. Please read the following information carefully so that you understand what needs to be achieved and then seek the help you need from your Home Group Teacher, Teachers and Parents/Carers so that you make choices that are suited to your interests and ability and your life pathway.
The SACE is generally based on two years of full time study, but students may take more than two years.
Course planning and subject choice will be guided by the work undertaken in the Personal Learning Plan (PLP), and in consultation with Parents/Carers and Teachers.
You can download a course planner for the SACE at the SACE Board website. Follow the link below and use the related links on the right hand side scroll bar to find it.

Policies & Procedures
The state government has released a statewide bullying prevention strategy focused on strengthening responses to children’s bullying both inside and outside the school gates.
Bullying prevention requires a whole-of-community response. To develop the strategy, the Department for Education has worked with Catholic and independent school sectors, government departments and non-government organisations.
The strategy’s initiatives include providing new bullying prevention resources for teachers, students and families. These initiatives will be implemented from 2019 to 2022.
