As students in Years 7 and 8, you are at the beginning of your secondary school journey.
As you make the step up from primary school to secondary school you may be feeling nervous or excited. This is a journey that presents you with some tremendous opportunities.
During these two years you will study a range of subjects. Some of these will be familiar to you from primary school. Others will be new.
Craigieburn Secondary College offers more than just curriculum. You have the opportunity to pursue a wide range of other interests. You could join a sporting team, take up debating or participate in a musical production. You can also have an active voice in how the school operates.
