Congratulations to all our Year 7 and 9 students who participated in the 2021 NAPLAN tests in Week 4. Students are to be commended on their positive attitude throughout the three days of testing. Students were prepared with the correct equipment, on time to each session and showed true determination in attempting these tests. 

As we enter the final few weeks of term it is important that students are well-prepared for their upcoming assessment and have implemented good study habits to assist them. One important strategy to manage time is to ensure that students regularly refer to the Assessment Calendars and Exam Blocks on the College Website.

Some further helpful hints to prepare for exams include:

  • Start Early – don’t leave your study until the week before the exam.
  • Plan a Study Timetable – this will ensure a certain amount of time each day is allocated to study. Students will find study timetables in their College diary on pages 18 to 21.
  • Find a place that is quiet and not distracting.
  • Turn off social media, text messages and phone calls to avoid interruptions.



A friendly reminder that 2022 Subject Information Evening will be held in Week 8. This evening allows parents and students to find out information about choosing subjects for 2022. 

Held on Wednesday, 9 June 2021 in the Auditorium, the night will be broken into the following sessions:

This event is compulsory for students in these year levels and students must attend in their College academic uniform. Following the evening, Heads of Faculty and teachers will be available to discuss specific subject choices in the College Library.
