Days of Excellence and Orientation

​STEM - learning more about Science at VPSHS

Recently Victoria Point SHS hosted our special Days of Excellence and Orientation Days for students from our feeder schools in Years 5 and 6. All students were warmly greeted by VPSHS Enrolments Officer Mrs Arnold and welcomed also by our Student Leaders and friendly reception staff.  VPSHS ensure that these days are very personal and positive experience and intended to make the primary students feel comfortable transitioning into High School.

The special programs started on Friday 12 November with Primary School Days of Excellence.  Year 5 students from feeder primary schools were invited to attend a day of exploration and experience programs of excellence under the VPSHS Academy banner.

Then on Wednesday and Thursday the following week 17/18 October, the Year 6 students got to enjoy their Orientation Days.  Through rotations around the different areas of the school and under the direction of some of the dedicated VPSHS’s teachers, these students experienced more interactive learning through the subjects of Home Economics, Robotics POE, AFL POE, Industrial Technology, VPtv Media POE, Dance POE, Business and Enterprise and STEM (Science).

Attendance was fantastic and it was a sea of smiling faces all around.  These young students seemed to thoroughly enjoy the interaction and experience of what is on offer at Victoria Point State High School. 

Both of these days gave Victoria Point SHS an opportunity to get to know these primary school visitors and continue to look forward to working with them throughout the future.  We look forward to welcoming  the Year 6’s next year first day of high school on 28 January 2019 as our newly enrolled Year 7’s.  We will s the  Year 5’s the following year.also look forward to seeing the Year 5 students again at next years Orientation Days.

Thank you to everyone involved,  it was indeed a great experience for everyone, and the feedback has been very positive.  More photos of these days can be seen on the VPSHS facebook page.
