Six hundred preps are gearing up for their first day of primary school, 500 are making the transition from primary school to secondary as year 7 students and 400 will be heading into year 12, meaning 5,900 students will be returning to school in grades 1 to 6 and years 8 to 11.

Minister for Education, James Merlino said, “We’re making sure every student has access to a great local school so they can get a world-class education and the best start in life.
