Here is a copy of the email sent to me from Maggie Musson (year 9 dean) about the taster day.
Just a reminder that we have our second Orientation Day this Friday December 2nd. Students need to bring their morning tea, lunch and water bottle- comfy clothes or uniform. For the first hour, there will be a separate session for Parents, so let them know they are welcome. This will be in the staffroom.
Students are to gather at the front reception area where we will meet them and move to the Gymnasium where we will be based for the day.
- 9.00am start
- PARENT PROGRAMME from 9.00am to 10.00am. Please encourage your families to come along for general information/ question time.
- The programme includes ‘getting to know you’ activities, a general introduction to our school culture, 3 mini- classes which involves moving around the school with supervision, lunch and games with the Year 10 Leaders and a Scavenger Hunt (finding your way around the school). We will also cover ‘First Day’ expectations and details.
- 2.30pm finish
- Robust transport options need to be in place to collect students.
Unfortunately a number of our buildings and classrooms are out of action since the earthquake, but we hope this won’t have too much impact on the planned programme for the day.
Any further queries please email me.
Thanks and looking forward to seeing your lovely students on Friday.
