In the context of secondary schooling, Year 9 is a time of transition, where students begin to move from being young adolescent boys and girls to developing young men and women. The social and emotional complexities that arise during this transition are often fraught with trepidation and confusion that result in poor decision making, displayed in adverse behaviour and negative attitude displays. Experiencing the connectedness to a community is important for young people. A program based on Chisholm’s values, to support the transition to adulthood, has continued to build the positive culture of the College.
