Junior Secondary School – Years 7, 8 and 9 

Head of Department: Karen Zammit
As the Junior Secondary HOD at Craigslea SHS, my role is to support all Year 7, 8 and 9 teachers and students in their educational experience and to ensure the six Guiding Principles of Junior Secondary are embedded in our everyday practice and pedagogy:
 1.     Distinct Identity
 2.     Quality Teaching
 3.     Student Wellbeing
 4.     Leadership
 5.     Parent and Community Involvement
 6.     Local Decision Making

I am one of the Core Year 7 teachers for English and SOSE and also work closely with the relevant Coordinators for each year level. Their role is to support your child’s Form teacher in guiding their respective cohort academically, socially and emotionally. The 2018 Year Level Coordinators are:
Year 7 – Ms Preston       (
Year 8 – Mr Moorcroft     (
Year 9 – Mrs Puckridge  (
These teachers develop and implement fortnightly CAB lessons (Wednesday, period 3) which are designed to develop student skills in relation to healthy habits, resilience, study regimes, time management, cyber safety, goal setting and positive self-talk.
Important information regarding Junior Secondary pedagogy is detailed in our Student Planner (pp.29-40). I encourage you to read through this information and be aware of expectations regarding Classroom Procedures and Bookwork Standards. Parents should also be familiar with the first 18 pages of this planner as it contains vital information about the school and its policies.
For further information, please refer to our Junior Secondary Handbook.
