    Get to know the way around?

    Greetings,
    In the first days of teaching practice the trainee should get to know the school / get to know the way around the school (find out where the staffroom is, where the toilets are etc.).

    Does the above sentence sound natural? Could you rephrase it? Can you suggest other synonymic phrases to the ones in bold?
    Thank you in advance.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Either one would be understandable, but "get to know their way around" is common.
