Recent events

Congratulations to our Year 7and 9 students for undertaking NAPLAN. The tests were held in our Multipurpose Centre which is a fabulous venue with great lighting and heating. The Practice General Achievement Test (an abridged version) was also held for students studying a Unit 3 or 4 subject. Students received external feedback on their writing section.

Response to recent lockdown

Thank you to all staff and students for their adaptability and flexibility to the recent lockdown. It was great to see that students were able to respond positively to the expectations of remote and flexible learning.

VCAA has decided to change the date for the General Achievement Test. Currently they have not published a new date but we expect that it will be this term. Therefore, Wednesday 9 June, will be normal classes for all Year 11 and 12 students.

Year 9 - 11 Semester One Examinations

All parents and students have received a copy of their examination timetable. Students who have a clash, have been asked to meet with their Level Coordinator to reschedule the examination. Year 10 and 11 revision commences on Thursday 3 June and Year 9 revision commences on Monday 7 June.

Year 10 and 11 examinations commence on Thursday 10 June and conclude on Thursday 17 June. Year 9 examinations commence on Tuesday 15 June and conclude on Thursday 17 June. Each afternoon, students will be emailed a seat and row number for each examination the next day.

Therefore, it is important that they are checking their emails. Friday 18 June is a student free day for staff correction.
