Hello everyone! Today I am going to be talking about my year 7 orientation.
This year I am in year 6 and I am loving it. The last 2 days (Monday and Tuesday) I have been having my year 7 orientation. We got to do so many fun things and it was a great experience. We had many girls from many year groups telling us about their experience in year 7, their challenges and how to face them, highlights, and many many tips which was very helpful to know. We got to meet a lot of new girls, and do a lot of super fun activities.
My questions for you today are:
- what year are you in?
- have you had your year 7 orientation?
- have you had your year 6 formal yet?
On Monday we came to school and we got a name tag with a coloured dot on it. The dot represents what group we are in for the activities (because there is a lot of girls), I was in the yellow group with so many nice girls who I got to know more. For the first 4 sessions we did testing, for the next 2, the yellow group did science and food tech. Science was really cool as we made a mixture to blow out a candle. In food tech we made cherry ripe bliss balls which tasted really good. Monday was such a fun day and my favourite activity was science.
On Tuesday, we came to school and again we got the exact same name tag as Monday. Today there was no testing to taste sessions on subjects. For the first session we found out a lot about year 7, and some girls from high school came to talk to us. In session 2 we had drama. I also had a music audition in that time. It was a lot of fun. Drama was such a fun activity where we played a lot of games and we learnt a lot of tips on how to act! In session 3 we had sport. Sport was a lot of fun as we played a lot of games and some new games that I have never played before. We learnt lots of skills and had heaps of fun. In session 4 many teachers talked to us about, music, sport, outdoor education and co-curricular activities. I found it very interesting and really enjoyed it. After that we had a scavenger hunt around the school which was heaps of fun. In sessions 5 and 6 my group did visual arts which was my favourite activity. Our art teacher confused our brains with activities that we normally wouldn’t do, told us some facts like we see things upside down first and then we flip it over, so we did drawing of something upside down. And we sketched something that we like doing but we could only look at the reflection of the mirror. Tuesday was such a fun day that I loved. I made so many new friends.
In conclusion, my overall year 7 orientation was amazing. I loved it and made so many new friends. I can’t wait to see them again next year and start year 7.
