Deputy Principal’s Report – Mrs Kay

Where has this year gone? Term 4 already. Year 12 graduated  at the end of last term. It was a wonderful graduation ceremony. My congratulations to the students who prepared many of the items and to the Year advisors, Ms Stuart and Mr Haas,  who nurtured them throughout their high school years. I wish them well in the HSC examinations and beyond.

Year 11 now begins their HSC pattern of study. It is important that they remain focused, complete assessments as they arise but still enjoy their last year at high school. Students need to maintain a healthy balance of study and leisure. To support them in their final year, we have organised for Cheryl Russell from the Board of Studies to speak to our students about the HSC and how best to prepare for it. She will visit the school on Monday, 28th October. Cheryl has been invited back next year to address parents on how they can best support their children in their HSC year. I will provide details early in 2014.  Parents and students of Year 11 can now access the ‘HSC Assessment Policy’ and the ‘HSC assessment calendar dates’ which are available on the school website for reference or download. Year 11 will have the opportunity to have a teacher mentor throughout their HSC year. Students will be provided with further information about this at the next Year Meeting (Monday, 28th October).

The school will be commemorating the 50th anniversary late this term. There will be a school assembly and the opening of the commemorative paver lawn garden. Thank you to all of the families who purchased pavers to support this initiative.

Our school truly has a lot to celebrate. From the larger successes of our current Year 12s -many having achieved early entry into university or scholarships to the smaller but poignant achievements of students which occur on a daily basis.
