Grade 8 orientation & sleepover
On the 10th of January 2017 Beaconhurst High School held their annual Grade 8 Orientation, where the fledging high school learners were shown around the school and introduced to their new teachers. This day was followed by their sleepover, which was held on the 13th of January. Most of the pupils who attended said that it was a fun event, with many mentioning waking up to scary-looking people at 2 o’clock in the morning, as the highlight of the evening. The following day, the Prefects of 2017 gave the Grade 8’s their Alien Slug theme and instructed them on what they have to call the prefects: Supreme Leader.
