The Start of Orientation
We began orientation yesterday (Monday) with a governmental medical check, which included filling out forms, having blood drawn, and going onto a bus to be x-rayed, ultrasounded, vision tested, and generally poked and prodded. We spent the afternoon learning how to navigate the school's IT system. Today, we get our schedules and teaching assignments, as well as meet our mentor teachers (returning teachers who will work with us throughout the year to help us work through the ins and outs of the school.) With over 2,000 students in the international division alone, there are a lot of systems to figure out! Wish us luck!
