Term 1 Reports: Year 12 Half Yearly and Term 1 Interim Reports
In 2019, College Reports will be provided electronically to all parents. For Term 1, College Reports will be emailed directly to parents. To ensure parent details are correct the College conducted a Census at the beginning of term. Therefore, if any parent has yet to clarify their contact details during this process or they have changed since the census, then they are encouraged to complete a Change of Details form via the College website/APP.
