We arrived and I took some photos before Irfan joined his school contingent for registration. There were 150 attendees from his school.
After registration, the teacher in charge briefed his contingent. It looks like there were representatives from every Form.
Irfan and the other First Formers take a photo together. He was the only one from his class.
