We were delighted to welcome our Year 9 and new students to Long Bay College on February 2 for the beginning of their College journey. With so many Year 9 students choosing to attend LBC in 2021, we can safely say the cohort is now the largest year group in our school!
The student’s first day began with a Powhiri welcome, with caregivers and staff also in attendance. As part of the Powhiri, the Prefect team performed the College Haka publicly for the first time.
Throughout the day, new students took part in a variety of activities to help them get to know the school and each other.
All year groups started the academic year on February 3. It was wonderful to see everyone back on campus. We held our first House challenge for the entire school on the field during the final period of the day.
We’re looking forward to getting to know our Year 9 student’s families better. A Year 9 Parent Information evening was scheduled for Wednesday, March 3 but has been postponed due to COVID-19 Alert Level 3 restrictions. Please look out for further email communication about this event.
