How are student classes formed?
Year 7 is made up of five core classes seven technology classes. We have two Academic Selective classes and two Talented Technology classes with other students grouped in mixed ability classes. In forming these classes, student gender and learning and development needs have been taken into account to carefully arrange the best mix in each class. The core classes remain together for all subjects except for Technology and Visual Arts where they have been divided into smaller class groups.
How do we know what assessments students need to do?
The Assessment Policy is available for download and contains a summary of all formal assessment undertaken by students during Year 7. Examinations within lessons are part of the assessment program for Year 7 students. Parents and students are encouraged to regularly check this page for relevant posts.
