Students enjoy their day
SHALOM College's newest members were welcome with open arms at a recent orientation day.
The 2012 Year 8 cohort enjoyed a day of introductions to the school where they learned about the house system and had afternoon tea before taking part in activities with senior students.
"They also had the opportunity to meet their big brother or big sister for 2012," acting deputy principal Elizabeth Austin-Campbell said.
"Our newest Year 8's for 2012 seemed to enjoy the whole afternoon."
A few days later, an abbreviated welcoming was held for those students who could not make it to the first orientation due to school camps.
"Our first day back next year involves only Years 8 and 12 so hopefully by the time all students are back, the Year 8s are feeling a little more comfortable," Mrs Austin-Campbell said.
"We look forward to seeing everyone next year."
THE Senior Schools Robotics Challenge was held at CQUniversity on November 11.
A team consisting of Shalom College Year 8 students Timothy Rogers, Aden Tranent and Connor Bauer competed well throughout the day.
Angus Lloyd, also a Year 8 student, competed in a mixed school team and received a prize for winning their section.
