Academic Review Day – Tuesday 17 May
On Tuesday 17 May, Year 11 and 12 students participated in the Academic Review Day from 8.30am – 4.00pm. The Academic Review Day allowed students to take ownership of their own learning and growth and gave students a chance to consider their strengths and challenges and develop strategies in order to succeed. The day was student-led and allowed students to communicate their progress and for some obstacles to success with their parents/caregivers and mentor teachers. Students lead a 15-minute conversation with their parents/caregivers and their Mentor teacher, during which they presented their subject results, attendance data, reflections, strengths and challenges they have encountered during the term. In their discussion, they considered a range of strategies, and created a learning plan to support their needs and discussed their aspirations beyond school whether it be further education, training or employment.
Senior School Exams
The Year 10 -12 Semester 1 examinations will be conducted in Week 7, Tuesday 14 to Friday 17 June 2022.
Year 10 Work Experience
This year the Year 10 students will be completed their Work Experience Placement in Week 5, Term 2 (Monday 30th May to Friday 3rd June 2022), as part of the requirements for their Personal Learning Plan assessment.

Work experience gives students:

- an opportunity to explore possible career options.
- increased self-understanding, maturity, independence and self-confidence.
- increased motivation to continue study and/or undertake further training.
