Back to School

by Poppy Jackson - Sunday, September 6, 2015

To all the future hounds, your first day of grade 9 is quickly approaching and I'm sure you're all filled with questions. So hopefully, this can answer some of them. On Tuesday, please arrive at the school at 8:30, as the opening assembly will begin at 9:00 in the auditorium. You will then be sorted into your homerooms and get toured around the school by students, where you will have the chance to participate in activities (like signing up for sports and clubs, etc.). You'll be having a barbecue for lunch, and then the afternoon will be spent going to all your classes and meeting your teachers for the semester. You don't have to worry about bringing a lunch on the first day, that will be provided for you. All you'll need is some basic school supplies, like pens, pencils, paper, binders or notebooks, etc. Your teachers will specify if you need anything extra for your classes, so don't worry about whether you have all the supplies you'll need for the first day. We can't wait to welcome all you future greyhounds to our school, see you on Tuesday!
