At Cranbourne East Secondary College, Year 8 students are provided with opportunities to consolidate on their first year of secondary schooling. For example, our Pastoral Care Program, commenced in Year 7, continues into Year 8. This program is essential in delivering ongoing pastoral support for students throughout the school year.

Our Year 8 students also benefit from several in-school programs and presentations. A significant highlight is the Year 8 Health and Wellbeing Day. Along with other programs, the Year 8 Health and Wellbeing Day allows our students to extend their knowledge and skills and to gain greater confidence in progressing further with their studies.
