Orientation Day and starting high school at NCAPAHS

Starting high school is a very important time in your child's life. You want to be sure that you have made the right decision for your child's education. More importantly you will want your child to feel comfortable with his/her new school and the prospects of their high school education. Knowing that Northmead Creative and Performing Arts High School values your child and cares about their future education will hopefully reassure you that you have made the right decision.   

Orientation Day this year will be for students ONLY  and will be held after school.  We thought it was important to still have orientation for the students so that they don’t spend the Christmas holidays worrying about high school and they know that we are really excited that they are attending our school. 

When: There will be two sessions - 1st December and 8th December 2021.

Start: 3.00pm

Finish: 5.00pm - It is essential that each student be collected by their parent/carer at this time.

Attire: Primary school uniform.

What to bring: Just a smile!

The afternoon will commence with a greeting at the school gates. Parents are asked to drop off students and be there to meet them at 5:00 PM to collect. 

Students have been placed into a group and each group will rotate through all 4 activities. 

Students, as they proceed through the gates, go to the sign which has their group label.   It is recommended that students where possible, wear masks on site. 

Afternoon activities

1. Deputy Principal will address students.

2. Tour 1 of the school

3. Tour 2 of the school

4. Year Advisor meet & greet.

Northmead Creative & Performing Arts High School  will run a full orientation program during the first week of the 2022 school year for all year 7 students as part of their transition to High School. 

Comprehensive information in the Year 7 Handbook detailing information on school fees, uniform requirements and how to purchase will be provided via a link that will be emailed  through to parents in the coming weeks. 

We would ask that the attached forms be completed and returned on Orientation Day  December 1st, 2022  by students. 

• E-Elective form  ( see below)


• Computer

• Swimming Carnival note.

Northmead CAPA High School offers an (E) Endeavour Elective program for Year 7 students. Students should indicate their top four choices on this form. 

Students who have successfully auditioned for the Creative and Performing Arts classes do not need to complete selections. Their endeavour elective is linked to their area of expertise, but fees do apply ($60.00). There is also a fee of $60.00 for those students who have been accepted into the High Potential and Gifted Academic Program for 2022. 

Statements will be emailed to parents/carers before the end of the year.  Included will be a link to make online payments. 

The Year 7 Camp will be held at Narrabeen Term 2 Monday May 30th through to Wednesday June 1st 2022.   Full information & costs will be advised in the new year. 

I am sorry that with current restrictions parents are unable to attend, but we look forward to meeting you early in 2022. Hopefully we will be able to run a 'Welcome to Northmead' evening for parents in the new year.
