Tooolooa SHS Junior Secondary Orientation Days

14/11/2013
 
Toolooa SHS Junior Secondary Orientation Days
 
 
This year we are holding two orientation days, one for students from year 7 and one from students from year 6. On Monday the 2nd of December, Year 7 students who will be attending Toolooa SHS in 2014 will visit Toolooa for the day.
 
On Tuesday the 3rd of December, we will be holding an orientation day for Year 6 students intending to come to Toolooa in Year 7 in 2014 as part of Education Queensland’s pilot program for moving Year 7 to high school.
 
Both days will begin with a bell at 8:45am and students will move to the shelter. They will be organised into groups and will attend four lessons during the day. TSHS Junior Secondary student leaders have been selected to take groups to each lesson and work in the class with them as well as taking them to and from their lunch area.
 
Towards the end of lesson 4 on each day, all students will return to the shelter for a question and answer session with our Principal, Mr Alan Whitfield. It is important that students are aware that they must organise their own transport to and from Toolooa and that they:
 

: wear full primary school uniform, particularly appropriate footwear
: bring an exercise book and pen, pencil and ruler, water bottle and a hat
: bring lunch or money to purchase lunch at our canteen

 
Any required medications should be clearly labelled and taken to our office.
 
Please note that students will be given all relevant information and handouts to ensure they are ready to commence Year 7 or Year 8 in 2014 on Tuesday, January 28th.
 
Students will be released from the shelter at 3pm to go home. Staff will be available on bus duty to assist students who are to travel on buses.
 
Any questions can be directed to the Transition to High School Coordinator
