FORMS TO BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO ORIENTATION DAY.

In preparation for Orientation Day, your assistance is required in completing the below forms for your child. Please complete and return these forms by 3.00pm Friday, 6 October 2023.

 

1. Please complete the Year 7 2024 Orientation Day and Language Selection Form.

 

Year 7 2024 Orientation Day and Language Selection Form

 

To assist us with our timetabling requirements, students are required to select a language for 2024. Places will be allocated on a first-come basis. Please discuss your child’s language choice with them, and ensure they choose their language carefully. Once an allocation of a language has been made, students are committed to the course for both Years 7 and 8 and they will not be able to change their language course. The College will contact you if it is deemed that your child will be placed in a literacy course rather than a language course.

 

The Language selection is part of the Year 7 Orientation Day Form, found above.

 

You will be notified of the allocated Language towards the end of Term 4, 2023.

2. Medical Details

 

Please complete this Medical Form, ONLY if your child's medical details have changed since the time of enrolment. 

When you complete the form, please email this together with any updated action plans, specialist reports or diagnosis reports to enrolments@olmca.wa.edu.au.
