School Transition

Finishing school can be an exciting but also daunting time. After the consistency and stability of school life, suddenly a world of possibilities is available, but which way to turn?

Employment? Volunteer work? Leisure and Community activities? It’s all possible.

Our customers, typically aged 14-19, use this time to explore their abilities, their likes and dislikes, learn new skills and even try living independently with supported respite at one of three Guest Houses.

Come in and talk to us about your goals, hopes, what you’re interested in, and the things you’d like to achieve. Together, we can help you explore the possibilities.

FAQ

What is School Transition?

School Transition is a range of activities and programs that aim to fill the space in a young person’s life once school finishes. It’s about linking abilities to passions and interests, in order to find fulfilling work or leisure activities. Rocky Bay staff get to know you, then link you with services that will help you flourish.

Who is it for?

Typically, customers participating in School Transition are high school aged, starting to think about their future after school. The earlier you start the better – meaning once you’ve finished school, you know what your plan is and are ready to get started.

What does it cost?

Costs will depend on the activity and the travel involved (if any). Ask our Customer Engagement team for pricing on specific activities.

What funding is available?

You can access services if you have an NDIS plan, Disability Services Commission funding, Medicare or if you want to fund your own services. We can also support you through the planning process if you do not have a plan already.
