Learning and Teaching

Year 12 Trial Exams

The Year 12 practice exams ran smoothly and the results will be available via the Parent Portal on 15 October. These results are indicative of how the students are currently placed in terms of their learning. It is important that students regard these exams as a learning opportunity and take the time to go through them and focus on or ask questions about any areas in which they can improve.  A special thanks to all the Year 12 teachers who have been frantically marking exams in order to return them to the students in record time.

Year 12s

The last day of classes for Year 12 students is Friday, 18 October. We will run another trial English and Literature exam commencing at 1:30pm. Year 12 students will then be involved in two days of special activities on Monday and Tuesday culminating in their Graduation Mass on Tuesday evening.

It is great to see that students are continuing to approach their study in a consistent manner. A most effective way to accomplish this is to complete as many practice papers and questions as possible. The teaching staff are always available during regular school hours to correct practice papers and assist in any way. Once the students start Swot Vac, their teachers will continue to be available in their normal class time.

Support and encouragement from family and friends is very valuable at this time, in order to keep up spirits and momentum. We’ll be thinking of you all and wish you the very best!

Examination Timetables 

Year 9 to 11 students will receive their Revision package and examination timetable within the next few weeks. An email will be sent to parents and students notifying you when this information has been posted on the portal. 

Learning and Teaching Curriculum Writing Day

The curriculum writing day is on 23 October and is a student free day. The purpose of this day is to work in subject level teams in order to update the 2020 curriculum documentation. It is an opportunity to ensure that the subject and year level curriculum is fresh, interesting, engaging and relevant and allows for students to develop their skills in a meaningful way.
