We are happy to have you as a part of the Georgian Bay Secondary School’s great team. You may be feeling unsure about what GBDSS is like, how you will fit in, and what your courses and teachers may be like. All of these thoughts are natural. To assist you in making a smooth transition to GBDSS, we invite you to participate in our exciting <strong>Orientation Day on Wednesday, August 30th from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. </strong></span></p><p class="x_MsoNormal" style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt;font-size:11pt;font-family:calibri, sans-serif;color:#212121;background-color:#ffffff;text-align:justify;"><strong><span style="font-size:12pt;font-family:"calisto mt", serif, serif, emojifont;"> </span></strong></p><p class="x_MsoNormal" style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt;font-size:11pt;font-family:calibri, sans-serif;color:#212121;background-color:#ffffff;text-align:justify;"><span style="font-size:12pt;font-family:"calisto mt", serif, serif, emojifont;">Starting at 9:30 a.m. you will be introduced to some of the most enthusiastic, energetic student leaders at GBDSS who form the link crew. They will be with you throughout the day, guiding you through a series of team building and spirit activities that will give you the opportunity to meet many of your new classmates. You will even participate in a fun, but challenging, scavenger hunt tour of the school. Another cool part of your day? A pizza lunch with some of your new friends, teachers and administrators. This will be a great event that you won’t want to miss!</span></p><p class="x_MsoNormal" style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt;font-size:11pt;font-family:calibri, sans-serif;color:#212121;background-color:#ffffff;text-align:justify;"><span style="font-size:12pt;font-family:"calisto mt", serif, serif, emojifont;"> </span></p><p class="x_MsoNormal" style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt;font-size:11pt;font-family:calibri, sans-serif;color:#212121;background-color:#ffffff;text-align:justify;"><span style="font-size:12pt;font-family:"calisto mt", serif, serif, emojifont;">Parents; do you have questions that require some attention?
