Secondary School Orientation

Orientation for students takes place at the beginning of each term. New students are given an overview of the school with information that is supported by the distribution of Student Information Booklets & Student Study Planner. Course Overviews are discussed leading to subject choices and the allocation of timetables. Students are then introduced to both the teaching and administrative staff and then provided with a tour of the campus.
