Year 7 2019 House Orientation Evening and Year 7 Orientation Day

Year 7 House Orientation Evening is an important Transition Event at Dominic College. This event assists students in transitioning into our 7-10 community. The first occasion is an evening orientation into their House family and the second is a full day of orientation to our 7-10 environment.

House Orientation Evening is held on Tuesday 23 October 2018. The event will commence at 7.00pm starting in the Savio Centre.

Following a brief information session students and parents will be divided into House groups on the evening with their new House Coordinator and the House Staff Team. They will learn about important information and aspects of the way we operate in order to be ready for a smooth entry into high school.

Students and parents will then have an opportunity to meet their Pastoral Teachers. The Pastoral Teacher acts as the first point of contact for both students and parents.

Orientation Day for Year 7 2019 students is on Wednesday 14 November 2018. All students entering Year 7 in 2019 will come and spend a day as a Year 7 student, participating in various activities and making new friends.
