October Orientation

Last weekend we welcomed our new students and families for 2018 with the October Orientation. The boys started the weekend with some Academic Testing before accompanying the rest of our community in a normal weekend of activities. While the boys were engaged, our new parents were given some 'transitioning' advice from Debbie Bushell.

Later that night we shared dinner together and participated in a quiz show hosted by our Senior Residential Student Leaders. The quiz consisted of some great rounds of questions with the favourite being the music round. We could see across the tables that there were some budding dancers just itching to jump up and show us their moves.

It was another successful weekend and one that we hope goes a long way to reducing the anxiety and concerns that our boys and families often feel when preparing for boarding life.
