What is on – Week 19
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
How terrific it was to see our fabulous Year 12 students at their formal and at the special brunch and ‘uniform toss’. Now, we look forward to a couple of exciting weeks ahead as we both welcome our new students for next year at Orientation Day and make final preparations for our College Graduation ceremonies and awards functions.
See below for details of our Orientation Day for Year 11 2018 on Monday and Parent/Carers Orientation session that evening. We look forward to meeting our new students including some younger siblings of current or previous students!
ORIENTATION DAY – MONDAY 4 DECEMBER 2017
Student Orientation Day for Years 10 and 11 (2018) is on Monday 4 December 2017. This is a fantastic opportunity for 2018 students to attend College for the morning and spend time exploring the facilities, meeting our staff and connecting with their peers.
Timetables and further information has been emailed to families. The email included a class change form which students will need to bring with them on the day, signed by a parent, if they would like to change a class.
We look forward to meeting our new students on Monday!
PARENT/CARER ORIENTATION FORUM – MONDAY 4 DECEMBER 2017
Gungahlin College is hosting a Parent/Carer Orientation Forum from 6:00–7:00pm on Monday 4 December for families joining the College in 2018.
This forum is targeted to support our new college parents to know, understand and support their young people in their journey within senior secondary education, both emotionally and academically.
We look forward to seeing you there!
