Middle School Report
With Term 3 now well under way, Year 9 and 10 students have completed their course counseling assignments for the year, and made their subject selections in line with their pathways for 2023. Year 9s have selected a wide range of subjects to study in Year 10 next year, and many of them have established a clear route into their chosen field of study in the years to come. Year 10 students also spent a great deal of time thinking about their options for next year; a number of students were successful in their applications to study an accelerated VCE subject in 2023. Thank you to all parents who attended our VCE information evening earlier in the term, and to those who contacted Year Level Coordinators to discuss course selections, and asked questions about the VCE and VCE VM pathways available to students next year.
On Tuesday 16 August, the Year 10 Peer Mentors led the annual speed careering sessions for Year 10 students. Members of the College’s business and community network were in attendance and met with students to discuss their careers and the pathways they took from Year 10 into employment. The sessions were very well received by the students, and the Peer Mentors did an excellent job of organising the session under the guidance of Mr Adrian McCall.
A number of Middle School students also took part in the MAV Maths Games and did very well in representing the school and solving a number of complex Maths problems. Congratulations to all the students who took part.
Year 9 students are now in the final stages of preparing for their City Experience excursion which begins on Monday 26 August. A reminder to parents to provide consent and payment for this excursion through Compass. Please contact your child’s Year Level Coordinator if you require further support with this.
