Your Personal Record as you Start High School.

Template to Record Starting High School

Writing Your Personal Record as you start High School comes from an idea given by HASS teacher Rebecca de Beer at John Forrest SHS. 

I thought filling out their Personal Record might help Year 7s to get grounded and become more conscious of who they are as they start on so much change.  

If you plan to read or store their Personal Records, you will need to tell them that before they write down their personal information.
