Induction Day tips - June 25th 2009, 07:28 PM

So I'm going to my new school tomorrow for a taster day.
But I'm really scared.
I don't know anyone there and I find it really hard to make friends
Any ideas or advice on how to get through the day?

i'm nervous about my college induction day in a few weeks, too!. i think the best advice is just to be yourself and enjoy yourself. try not to get too worried about doing or saying the wrong thing. chances are there are others who are probably feeling exactly the same as you who are going so don't worry.

get involved with anything thats going on - that really is the best way to get to know people. don't just take a backseat, involve yourself in conversations and activities. are you having taster lessons of your subjects? if so this is a good way to make friends, with people in your classes.

good luck and have fun! :]


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Everyone is going to be in the same position as you so don't be afraid to speak to people, go up to them and ask what their name is and everything, make conversation. If you're having a taster day of subjects and you've got like a tutor group then your tutor could do something so that you can meet everyone and get to know each other so that could help.

How strange that we share the same age, name, andwe're both switching schools next year?? Hah.. and I know it's not exactally ironic to find someone similar to you in at least one way on the internet, but yours is the first post I visited tonight, and I'm so rarely on this site anymore. hahaha.. ah well.

Now it's too late for me to give you any advice. So, how was your "taster day"? And have any tips for me when my new kid orientation comes around?

Just remember everyone will be new there so everyone is going to start off in the same place as you. Just start a conversation like Hi nice shirt where did you get it?
or
Hi what's your name? Really?? mines xxxx, I am from xxxx....


Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.
