Over the course of the last week there have been some significant updates regarding the learning here at the College. These are summarised here below.
Year 12 Thursday Seminars
Year 12 students are reminded that the Thursday afternoon seminars will recommence on 2nd September.
Year 12 Final Reports
Following the Trial HSC Assessments, teachers will finalise the last school-based report Year 12 students will receive from the College. These reports will be emailed by Friday 8th October.
Thursday, 9th September – Year 12 Student/Parent/Teacher Interviews (Online)
Though the Y12 Final Reports will not be available, the College recognises the importance of conducting these interviews so that teachers can provide feedback to students and parents following the Trial HSC Assessments. Booking details will be communicated during Week 8.
Year 11 HSC Preliminary Assessment Block (Monday, 6th – Wednesday, 15th September)
These assessments will be administered online like the recent HSC Trial Assessments.
Term 3 Years 7 –10 DSE Reports
Reporting on student achievement in an online environment provides significant challenges when using the current DSE criteria. Therefore, for the Term 3 DSE Reports, the College has modified the criteria to better reflect the online environment and the engagement by the students. These reports will be emailed to families during the Term 3 holidays.
Year 7 – Year 10 Student/Parent/Teacher Interviews postponed to Term 4
The Year 7 – Year 10 Student/Parent/Teacher Interviews scheduled for this Term have been postponed. The new date for these interviews will be dependent on the restrictions when and if we return in Term 4. We will communicate this alternative date once we are aware of the Term 4 landscape.
At this stage the online learning is continuing until the end of term. Please be assured that our staff are continuing to create engaging lessons for our students in the online learning environment. Please ensure that if you have any questions or concerns about your son’s progress that you initially make contact with your son’s classroom teacher.
Best of luck as we head towards the end of term 3. Whilst it has been a challenging term for all, we hope that you and your families have been travelling safe and well, and are looking forward to a holiday break.
