Year 7 Orientation Day
What an exciting day for our children progressing to Year 7 in 2018. Including our new students, we had 42 nervous but excited students.
After an initlal meet and greet with Mr Bray anda Mrs Meek, the students played team building games in the MPC.
After Recess, the students experienced a taste of English and Maths - Secondary style.
A pizza lunch was enthusiastically enjoyed as well as some games in the playground.
After lunch, Science featured experiments of testing food for starch and explosions; as well as craft contours.
It was lovely to see our new students being included in games and new friendships budding.
In the evening we were delighted to also welcome nearly 60 parents/carers of these students to an information evening. Parents/carers were able to enjoy a coffee from the Bearded Brewer coffee van as well as a light supper. Mrs Meek spoke to parents about what to expect in Year 7 and Mr Bray also attended to welcome parents.
