New Year 7 first day - Tuesday 3rd September 2019
Below is some useful information regarding your son's first day at the school:
Tuesday 3rd September 2019 - first day for new year 7 students from 10.00am – 3.10pm.
As we know the first day at a new school can be daunting, both for the students and their parents/carers. This information is here to give you a helping hand as to what to expect for his first day at secondary school, what he should bring with him and what we at SJWMS aim to achieve from this day.
Things to know
Students must wear their full school uniform and look presentable. Please refer to school website for full information on uniform required by clicking here: /178/uniform. We will meet on the Da Vinci Playground.
The Canteen will be open but will have only a small selection of food on offer for those boys with funds on their Wisepay accounts. Alternatively your son can bring in a packed lunch.
School stationery (pens, pencils, ruler etc.) are needed as well as their games kit.
The day itself
Your son will be taking part in various activities on his first day, which will include lessons, familiarisation and team building exercises.
From these activities we aim to make our new students feel welcome and comfortable in their new surroundings. We hope that the fun team building exercises will allow them to form new friendships with their classmates and give our teachers an insight into each student’s personality and academic learning style. Orienteering will aid in getting to know the layout of the school and help with finding designated classrooms.
Any problems with accessing Wisepay accounts should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org giving your son's full name and form.
We look forward to seeing you all in September.
