Junior Secondary – 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 Social Studies and Languages 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 2019 Year Level Coordinators are:
Year 7 – Ms Preston       (
Year 8 – Mr Moorcroft     (
Year 9 – Mrs van der Maat  (
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.
Information regarding Junior Secondary Classroom Procedures and Bookwork Standards is included in the Student Planner (p.30).
For more detailed information about the principles and processes that underpin our core business, please refer to our Junior Secondary Handbook.
