Not long now until you become a Frenchie…
Feeling anxious about making friends on your first day? You’re not alone! It’s actually one of the most common fears all soon-to-be #Frenchies have before they embark on their studies. Experiencing nerves before your first day is totally normal. We all worry about what others will think about us, will we fit in, will people be nice, will we be accepted… but the people you meet at Orientation will soon become your great friends – the very same people who cheering you on and celebrating your success at Graduation in just 12 months!
We have a number of key activities and sessions planned to get you comfortable, meet your peers and educators and find out everything you need to know before your official first class.
Over the 2 days we will be covering:
8.00am – Personalised Arrival and Welcome. Your Campus Principal will extend an invitation to an Express Orientation and will share more detailed information.
8.30am – Deputy Principal Welcome. You will be welcomed by the Campus’s Deputy Principal and introduced to your class cohort and Educator for Day One.
9.00am – Class Starts
12.00pm – Lunchtime with the Principal. Sit down to an exclusive lunch hour with your campus Principal during class break who will officially welcome you to The French. They will run you through everything you need to know about campus, facilities, support and all the final steps of getting started at The French. BYO lunch.
