New Student Morning 2024

Friday 19 January 2024 | 8:45am - 10:30am

The day will commence with a separate information session for parents and students. Parents will receive some information from the leadership team and will have the opportunity to address any last-minute questions. Students will meet their Heads of Year; learn which homeroom they will be allocated to and access their timetable.  

Following the information sessions, students and parents will be escorted as a Year group to their homeroom or classroom and will have the opportunity to meet their 2024 homegroup or classroom teacher. 

A morning tea will then be held in the breezeway of the LINQ Precinct where you will have an opportunity to speak with staff representatives from various faculties and portfolios. 

It is unnecessary for students to wear a uniform to the New Student Morning; however, we request that you encourage your child to please choose College appropriate attire on that day. 

If you have any questions, please contact our Enrolments Manager, Miss Hollie Reynolds: [email protected].
