With year 12 near the completion of their HSC examinations, year 11 embark on their HSC courses and begin the 12 month countdown to their final examinations.
The term commenced for year 11 with information meetings, careers interviews and an academic interview with Mr Marsh and Mrs Kay. The interviews focused discussion on an analysis on the performance of the year 11 year and with discussion of longer term goals defined a direction forward with course changes and commitment of study to work towards these goals.
Individualising the advice and support for students in this busy year is crucial for success. Setting high expectations and support towards these maintains the motivation and will better place students to reach their potential and dreams.
They are a group that are hungry for success and in our individual discussions, a commitment to working harder and focusing on preparation for the HSC was expressed quite strongly by the students. Working together, the school, the students and family at home can see that desired success achieved. We will continue to keep year 11 families informed and involved throughout the next 12 months.
