Step Five: Orientation Day

Orientation is an opportunity for new students and their parents to get better acquainted with SSIS. Students will meet their homeroom teachers, get the chance to see where their classes are and take a tour of the school. Bus information, uniforms, lunch accounts and laptops (for Grade 5 and above) will also be organized.

Step Six: Welcome to SSIS and the First Day of School

Every new Elementary and Secondary student is assigned a buddy – another student who has been new once too. This new friend is there to help make the transition into a new school a bit easier. Welcome!
