Every year in September, we have a New Student Reception at our high school. We have a 45-minute tutorial session once a week so we have it during that time. We give the new students a goody bag of little items like pencils, school key chains, school lanyards, etc. We also partner them with a mentor student (one who's active in school groups, trustworthy, etc.) and feed them. Hey, who doesn't like food? It's not a lot but is a nice way of recognizing them and helping them to adjust to their new environment.
