Paths to Penrhos, transition and orientation

During our boarders’ orientation, boarders and their parents spend time with respective Heads of Years and teachers, our Head of Boarding and Boarding House staff, College Psychologists and other relevant members of the Penrhos College community. In these sessions, detailed information is shared on College procedures and expectations; there is also naturally an opportunity for questions. 

Boarders commencing in Year 7 and 8 spend extra time at the College and Boarding House for their introduction to the Paths to Penrhos program. This introduction is scheduled to coincide with the Welcome Afternoon for all new Penrhos students in August. 

At the start of the year, all new boarders settle into the Boarding House earlier than the returning boarders. This allows new boarders and their families the opportunity to unpack and spend time relaxing and getting to know the staff, each other and ask questions.
