Junior Sub School Manager
Given that our Year 7 students have almost completed their first full year her at NGSC, I thought I would take this opportunity to share some of their stories with you.
In 2018 I moved to NGSC for Year 7, and I have loved it. My first day here I was scared but, as the first week went on I started to make new friends and meet new teachers. It’s the end of the year now and my favourite thing throughout this year was meeting new people and making new friends. When I came here it was scary, but now I think it was the best choice I made to come here. I think 2018 has been the best year.
My first year of high school was challenging. Of course it was always going to be challenging, no matter what I did, because of my Autism. Apart from all the hurdles and obstacles I had to face over the past 12 months, transition was hard because I didn’t attend the orientation, because I originally was going to another school, but I’m actually very glad that I ended up here because it has been amazing. The Wellbeing centre is amazing and they have an onsite doctor. The classrooms at the moment are being upgraded to state of the art, to ensure the best learning, and the staff are really nice and caring. If they notice that there’s something wrong they will go out of their way to help you or fix the problem. Overall, attending North Geelong Secondary College is one of the best decisions I have made.
My first year at NGSC has been so many things. Honestly, I think it will take a paragraph just to explain all the thrills of Term 1! I have had such an amazing year. The best part of the year has definitely been making new friends and not just students, but teachers as well. All the teachers have been so encouraging and the students have been so welcoming. The only part of the year I haven’t enjoyed so much is the homework, but I eventually adjusted to it. Overall 2018 has been one of the best years of my life and I can’t wait to start 2019 on a positive high!
As soon as I got here on the first day of Year 7, I was looking forward to a great year. I settled in and made some amazing friends. They’re a little strange, but that’s okay, because I am too, once you get to know me. There are always people that will help you, and the teachers are supportive and nice. If you are looking for a high school to go to, then NGSC is the place to go. You will make friends from other year levels as well. No matter how smart you are, you will always reach your goals if you try. As I had hoped for at the start of the year, this has been a great and wonderful year, and I’m glad I left my primary school when I did. This has probably been the best year ever.
