From the Leader of Learning and Curriculum

The College congratulates a large number of our students for their tremendous success in their academic, cultural and sporting endeavours throughout the year. 

Many students achieved results that were recognised at our End of the Year Award Assemblies, where students were acknowledged and congratulated on their efforts. 

It is also important at the end of each year for students to reflect on their results via their academic reports. This is an opportunity for students to work towards developing their learning, social, emotional and spiritual goals for next year. I encourage both students and their parents to meaningfully engage in reviewing the end of year reports with the view of setting achievable targets for 2022.

This week we also recognise the outstanding achievement of Elle Colatosti, who has been nominated for inclusion in ARTEXPRESS in 2022, with her artwork titled, Tool of Tools. From 8440 students who submitted Bodies of Works for the 2021 HSC Visual Arts Examination, only a small percentage of students were nominated for ARTEXPRESS. Congratulations, Elle!

As we head into the school holiday period, it is important for students to have a restful break, recharge and spend quality time with family and friends. The period can also be used as a time for students to work on areas of growth in their own learning, in ways as simple as reading a book to work on aspects of literacy and comprehension. During the school holidays, it is essential that Year 11 students allocate time to consolidate work from Year 11 and their first term of Year 12. Part of this includes ensuring study notes are up to date and any outstanding work has been completed. In order to work towards a successful 2022, it is essential that students are organised in order to prepare for the challenges ahead. 

I wish everyone a safe and holy Christmas and New Year.
