Year 6 to Year 7 Enrolment Timeline for 2024

Students attending Year 6 in a government primary school are provided with a transition package in April 2023, by their current Primary school.

Once the Application for Year 7 Placement Form is completed, parents return this to the primary school who will then forward it on to the secondary school listed as the first preference.

If you would like your daughter or son to attend John Fawkner College in 2024, it is important to list John Fawkner College as your first preference during the application process managed by their primary school.

Our College’s presentation evening is yet to be decided. This is our showcase evening to provide enrolment information and a snapshot of the great programs we offer. A further parent Information Evening is organised during October, for Parents and students to learn more about their school of choice. You may also book a tour of the College throughout the year.


At John Fawkner Secondary College, we understand that starting secondary school can be an exciting but sometimes overwhelming experience for a teenager.

There are many things about secondary school that are different from your old primary school environment, and you will experience many changes. Some of the challenges faced by year 7 students are: having to find their way around a new school, reading timetables, making new friends and getting to know new teachers. There are many different staff at John Fawkner Secondary College available to help you deal with any problems. Your teachers and friends are there to help you transition into this great new time in your life.
