Year 7 Orientation

Hello and welcome to the SFX Community. We had sincerely hoped Orientation Day could be held physically at the College this year, however, just as with so many other grand plans over the last two years, COVID-19 had other ideas.

We know the transition to high school can be nerve-racking for students and parents alike and please trust us when we say we will support you through this process—however long that settling in period may be.

Year 7 is a time of transition and you will have lots of time to learn about the school and make new friends once the school year officially begins. We have put together a video and resources to assist you in feeling at ease about the year ahead. Enjoy the video with your parents, have a look over the sample timetable and map and start making a list of any questions you have to bring along on your first day to ask your Pastoral Leader.

High school is a combination of highs and lows for everyone, just rest assured that we will celebrate your successes and help you grow from the lows.

We are very excited to meet you next year and cannot wait for your arrival at St Francis Xavier College.
