Students will be escorted by staff and current students from the drop-off/pick-up to the Gymnasium.
WHAT DOES MY CHILD WEAR AND BRING FOR THE DAY?
Students are to wear their Primary School Sports Uniform, including runners, school hats and sunscreen. Students are asked to bring lunch, a water bottle and a pencil case and a school bag to carry all their belongings. Please ensure all belongings, including their drink bottles, are clearly marked.
Students will be supplied with morning tea by the current Year 7 cohort, and the College will provide students with a juice box. If your child has any allergies, please be sure to include this specific information in the forms below and please have your child bring their own morning tea (dependent on the allergy).
We encourage students to leave their mobile devices at home. Alternatively, it can be left switched off in their bag. Please note that the College can not be held responsible for damage and or loss of personal items.
FORM 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, 7 October 2022.
1. Please complete the Year 7 2023 Orientation Day and Language Selection Form.
To assist us with our timetabling requirements, students need to select a language for 2023. 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 & 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, 2022.
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 email@example.com.
