As part of our induction of new students to St Mary’s College, staff conduct an annual Orientation Day that takes place in Term 4.
The date for the 2019 Orientation Day will be shortly announced.
The overall aim of the day is to ensure your son’s smooth transition into St Mary’s College. We aim to ensure your son feels welcome, cared for and at home at St Mary’s College. On arrival at the College on this day, we ask all new students to present themselves at the front of the Brothers’ House (West Street), at 9am where they will be met by the Deputy Principal, students and other staff. The boys then will be accompanied to the College Hall, for a short welcome from the Principal, Mr Michael Newman, followed by a full day’s orientation program.
The students then spend the day participating in lessons, learning how to timetable and organise, participate in team building activities and ‘getting to know you’ activities, they receive and explanation of expectations of students at St Mary’s College, and are provided time to ask questions.
A barbecue lunch is provided for the boys.
