Welcome to Genesis!

Launch 22 Program – Friday, 4 February 2022

This page contains information for all new students commencing Prep – Year 10 at Genesis Christian College in 2022.

Launch Overview

To facilitate a smooth start to the academic year, new students to the College are invited to New Student Orientation Sessions on Friday, 4 February. In this season, we ask that students are to be accompanied by only one parent/carer.

For the purpose of classifying students, a “NEW” student is any student entering Prep to Year 12 who is starting at Genesis in 2022 (not students who attended Genesis in 2021).

Uniform Requirement

All new students (excluding Prep) are required to wear their Genesis formal day uniform and regulation school shoes on this morning for ID photos.
