Year 7 “Doves”

On Thursday 31st January 2019 the Year 7 “Doves” commenced their high school journey at Bethany College. They were eagerly welcomed by the College Leadership Team, the Year 10 Big Sisters, the Year 12 leaders, the Year 7 Team and their Year Coordinator. The girls spent the day in homeroom and year assembly, learning about the nuts and bolts of Bethany and getting to know one another through icebreaker activities. From all accounts, the new Year 7 cohort transitioned smoothly and embraced their first week at the College with great enthusiasm.

On Friday evening the parents of Year 7 students were officially welcomed to the College and had the opportunity to meet their daughter’s teachers. In addition to this, on Monday evening the students were inducted liturgically into the school with a beautiful welcome mass. On this evening, the students received their Bethany badges and their bibles.

I would like to congratulate the Year 7 “Doves” for embracing their new routine and surroundings with maturity and resilience and would like to express my sincere thanks to all the teachers and students who have been involved in welcoming and supporting the students as they adjust to high school life.
