PUPILS from Widemere Public School, Greystanes, were given the opportunity to experience high school unofficially.

The year 5 students attended an open day at Merrylands High School to gain a perspective on life after primary school.

They also got to meet former The Voice contestant Taga Paa and NRL/AFL star Israel Folau.

The kids got to try out equipment in the science and woodwork rooms and also take part in history lessons.

It's hoped through the day, the transition to secondary school will be easier on the students.
