Here’s a Glimpse into Middle School Life

School is most likely the only time of the week when your child is present – in the moment. Social Media use has been and continues to be on the rise and influencing students’ minds daily. And you can’t always control what appears on their screen.

We understand that you want your child to develop core skills such as communication, conflict resolution, resilience, make good friends, and have diverse opportunities to explore.

At Tyndale, we introduced a no-phone policy from Year 7, the first year of Middle School to encourage students to be active participants in the community and immerse themselves in their educational journey without distraction.

When your child joins us in Year 7, they will experience specialist subjects for the first time and explore growth opportunities like Middle School Musical, Camps, Colour Run, Middle School Sports Week, participate in SACSA Sports Carnivals and have leadership opportunities.

Your child will also be supported by Teachers who are passionate about building relationships with your child.

For a gentle transition from Year 6 (Junior School) to Year 7 (Middle School), your child will still have a key Teacher with whom they complete their core subjects. Students then move to another classroom to complete their specialist subjects, such as Digital Technology, Drama, Hospitality and Technology Studies.

In Year 8, students embark on Year 8 Camp and begin settling into a new routine where we encourage them to participate in the extra-curricular programmes available to help them discover new passions and build friendships with one another.

We help your child pursue RISE principles (respect, integrity, service and excellence) by providing them with a vibrant and challenging learning environment through the Year 9 Rite Journey programme. Our Middle School staff are passionate about helping young people navigate the adult world’s complexities therefore every Year 9 student participates in the programme as a core part of their Year 9 experience.

We are enrolling for Year 7 in 2024 and 2025. Book a School Tour and come and see why… Tyndale.
