Warm wel­come on tran­si­tion day

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - @SCHOOL - Belinda Guthrie, Head of De­part­ment Ju­nior Sec­ondary

AN­OTHER ea­ger co­hort of stu­dents de­scended on the high school as we hosted our an­nual Year 6 Tran­si­tion Day.

On Tues­day, De­cem­ber 4, around 120 stu­dents par­tic­i­pated in the fi­nal in­stal­ment of our ex­ten­sive Tran­si­tion Pro­gram.

Stu­dents from Alexan­dra Bay, Dain­tree, Ju­lat­ten, Miallo, Moss­man, Mount Mol­loy, Port Dou­glas, Saint Au­gus­tine’s and Wonga Beach schools spent the day at our school.

Many stu­dents be­gan their day with a bus trip into school while oth­ers were brought in by par­ents.

Once the school day started, we put them straight to work af­ter sort­ing them into their classes for 2019.

From the be­gin­ning, there was lots of get­ting to know each other, as stu­dents be­came ac­quainted with their new class­mates and their new teach­ers.

Through­out the day, stu­dents ex­pe­ri­enced a taste of what to ex­pect next year, and to par­tic­i­pate in morale build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

We joined to­gether at lunch time to cel­e­brate the day with a sausage siz­zle and a shared cake to wel­come them all. By all ac­counts it was a suc­cess­ful day.

The staff at Moss­man High School look for­ward to work­ing closely with our new stu­dents and their fam­i­lies in 2019.

If you have a son or daugh­ter who is due to start Year 7 next year, and you have not en­rolled them, please con­tact the school of­fice on 4084 1333.
