Senior School Report
At this time in the school year, we are leading up to final examinations for our Year 11 and Year 12 students. We have our Year 12 students back at school and we are working with our Year 11 students remotely.
Year 12 External exams will commence on Wednesday 27 October with English and EAL and be completed by Wednesday 17 November. Some Language exams and VET Music exams have already been done as has the GAT.
Year 12 VCE students sat through a series of online revision lectures during the holidays. Some of these were run by EQUAL Ed and some by Year 12 teachers. Practice exams were pushed back and were done in classes when students returned to onsite learning after the GAT in Term 4.
Students got a ‘taste’ of where they are at with their studying and what sort of preparation is ahead of them leading up to their final exams.
On Monday 11 October and Wednesday 13 October, the Year 12 VCAL students had their interviews where they show cased their folios for the time they were in the VCAL program. They discussed with the panel members the skills, knowledge and experience they gained in the program, especially working during the pandemic, and what they plan to do in 2022.
This year we again hosted our Annual Year 12 Awards Evening in a completely different way. It was the ‘Graduation/Awards Afternoon’.
The event took place in the school’s Performing Arts Centre (PAC). Students were in classrooms and then made their way to the PAC received their graduation certificates and subject awards wearing their graduation gowns. They then made their way back into their allocated classroom.
The event was live streamed for students, family members and friends to see.
The guest speaker for the afternoon was Steve OBEID.
Steve completed his VCAL certificate at St Albans SC and he shared his career journey with our school community during the afternoon.
We also had Year 12 students in the VET Music class perform for their peers.
It was a prestigious and inspiring event which showed just how talented so many of our students are and how hard they had worked during the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a graduation of a different kind, but our students did us proud. Congratulations to all.
