Princethorpe Welcomes New Year 7s For An Action Packed Activity Day
Friday 28 August was an exciting day for 116 Year 7 pupils who are joining Princethorpe College this academic year.
For this latest generation of Princethorpians, the Activity Day was a chance for them to finally meet their new classmates, familiarise themselves with the layout of the school, get a feel for the sorts of lessons they can expect and to generally ask questions, allay any fears and ease the transition to secondary school.
Our incoming Year 7s arrived looking excited and a little bit nervous in readiness for an action-packed day. Head of Transition, Susan Harris greeted them warmly and soon had them organised into teaching groups before their friendly Sixth Form helpers led them off to try a variety of sample lessons.
They participated in fun team building activities including a scavenger hunt, took part in an informative Q&A with their new Head of House and enjoyed an afternoon Games lesson.
During the day we saw plenty of smiling faces and it was clear that everyone was making new friends. It was a flying start to secondary school that will have helped them get ready for the start of the Michaelmas Term.
