Senior School Report
Term 3 has commenced for all senior students on site.
Our Year 11 and 12 students came back to school Term 3. Some senior classes are still taught remotely and once again, our students have adapted really well.
Information from the State Government and the Education department.
Please take note of the following dates as they have now been finalised:
- VCAA – GAT (General Achievement Test): Thursday 12 August 2021. This is compulsory for any student studying a Unit 3/4 subject wanting to do the external exams
- VCAA External Exams : Wednesday 27 October to Wednesday 17 November
Our Year 12 students also did their Mid-year exams during the school holidays.
Their results are on the ‘End of Unit 3 Reports’. These reports will be available to families on Compass.
The Year 12 students will be doing Study Skills workshops with Equal ED during Week 6 and Week 9 this term.
They will be done one of their double Study periods. The program is provided to support students with study skills, time management and self-care.
Just reminding families that there is another exam period for all Year 12 students who completing VCE for an ATAR. These Unit 3/4 Practice Exams will take place during the September holidays:
- Monday 27 September to Friday 1 October.
With all the assessments taking place so we can best prepare our students for their final exams, it is important that students and families are aware that marks may change due to statistical moderation, the GAT and individual student ranking.
ABCN Focus has finally commenced again this year. It is a leadership program for girls. Twelve Year 11 girls have been selected and they will be working with a mentor from NBN. Again this is all going to be done remotely.
Year 11 students have just selected their subjects and courses for 2022. Some have also chosen to move from VCE to VCAL. I just want to remind families that the is a ‘Promotion Policy’ from Year 11 into Year 12, regardless of the choices that students make. Please have a look at the ‘Senior Sub School handbook’ that was given to families during Term 1 as it explains the policy.
Coordinators will also be contacting families if their child is at risk of not meeting the Promotion Policy.
Again, we would like to thank parents who contact us when their child is absent for any reason. This is of great assistance to the Year Level Coordinators, as we call home regularly if there are any unexplained absences. The Case Management process continues to monitor closely the attendance, achievement and individual needs of all our students. Please contact us on 9366 2555 if you have any queries or concerns about your child.
