ENROLMENT » COMMENCEMENT

Ready For Your First Day?

We’re excited to welcome you to our teaching and learning community here at Faith Lutheran College!

To help you prepare for your first day, we’ve compiled some key information, documents and suggestions below.

Commencing on the first day of a new School Year

Students commencing on the first day of a new school year will join with a number of other new commencements and participate in our start of year welcome program. This program is run annually for all new starters (usually across the first week) and is designed to set all students up for life and learning at Faith Lutheran College.

Students will need to wear full formal uniform on the first day of the school year.

Commencing in the middle of a School Term

During the school term (outside of the very first day), new students always commence on a Wednesday.

This occurs for a number of reasons:
 

  • Our Wednesday Program provides us with the best opportunity to welcome new students and ensure they are equipped to begin learning.
  • Beginning on Wednesday makes for a short first week, which helps with any anxiety or nervousness a new student might be feeling.
  • Our Wednesday timetable is very flexible, allowing our staff, and your child’s new classmates to dedicate time and attention to showing new students around.
As you prepare for your first day at Faith, both our Enrolments Team and our Teaching and Learning Leaders will work to ensure you have everything you need to begin your educational journey with us.
