The Senior Campus has been very busy with exams continuing for students studying a Year 12 subject and this week Years 10 and 11 students started their exams. Staff have been busy assisting students, preparing and marking exams and getting ready for the Early Commencement Program.
The Senior and Middle Sub school teams have worked very hard to ensure that the exams have run smoothly. A special thank you to all of the teams, the faculty heads, the subject teachers and learning executive and Mr Ras van der Merve (Daily Organiser/ Timetabler) who have ensured that the exams have been organised, prepared and run smoothly.
Students in Years 9 to 11 are expected to attend all exams unless they are ill or there are other exceptional circumstances. Parents/ carers are asked to contact the college if their child is absent. Year 9 students have timetabled classes as well as exams. The exams provide a valuable opportunity to reflect and review on their exams and to develop strategies to improve as they move into 2019.
Professional Learning at the college
A number of staff will be attending subject association conferences over the next few weeks. These provide an opportunity for teachers to meet with colleagues and hear from experts in their subject areas. This is very important, particularly for VCE teachers who may be teaching a new course in 2019.
A number of our VCE teachers are assessing Year 12 exams. This involvement benefits our students as the teachers gain experience and develop their expertise in what students are required to do in Units 3 & 4.
I would like to thank Mrs Debbie Sekula who has been overseeing my role within the college while I am have been on medical leave during the past few weeks.
