We have come to the end of another term and it is time for our students to enjoy the holidays.  Term 3 has been our first full term in 2020 and our students have experienced a multitude of assessment across their various subjects in the past few weeks.  I encourage each one of our girls to use these holidays to recharge their batteries, take some time for themselves, read a book and spend time with friends and family.  Before we know it, we will be in Term 4 which moves at a rapid rate.

Year 10 and 11 students have just experienced Exam Blocks.  All students in these year levels are to be commended on their attendance during this period and the professional way that they conducted themselves. 

Year 12 students encountered their first taste of Mock Exams in the last two weeks.  This is a valuable time to reflect on the experience and gain feedback before they head into their External Assessment and Common Internal Assessment (CIAs) in Term 4.  Year 12 students and their parents/guardians were emailed the Term 4 attendance schedule for Weeks 1 to 3.  If students or parents have any questions about the first 3 weeks of Term 4, they are encouraged to contact me.

Year 11 Subject Changes

Year 11 students will finish Unit 2 at the end of Term 3, 2020.  Unit 3 content will then begin on Tuesday, 7 October (Week 1, Term 4).  Students wishing to change subjects for Unit 3 and 4 can book a meeting with myself.  Subject changes for Unit 3 and 4 must be finalised by Friday, 16 October (Week 2, Term 4).  Any student that wishes to change subjects, must do so at the beginning of Unit 3, as any student that changes throughout either Unit 3 or Unit 4 will not receive credit for these paired units.

Report Cards

Report Cards will be distributed to all year levels during the holidays.  These report cards will then be used to inform Speech Night Academic Awards.  Student’s receiving Speech Night Academic Awards will be announced at our first assembly in Term 4 on Wednesday, 7 October.  Further information regarding Speech Night and Academic Award recipients will be distributed at this assembly.
