This period in the last weeks of Semester One with examinations concluded and preparations for Reporting represents an important time for our students in the various secondary year groups as they reflect on achievement and start to make further decisions about course selections for the year ahead.
One of the most significant things will be the Subject Selection Process for our current Year 10 students as they contemplate their course decisions and pathways to prepare for entering Year 11. Our Curriculum Handbooks and the information required will see students and parents having opportunities to discuss what these future choices involve. Appropriate guidance and advice through our course selection counselling interviews for all Year 10 students will be a vital part of that process.
For our most senior students in particular the disruption to the academic year has brought about some changes and adjustments and we continue to monitor through directions from SCSA, how to ensure that students and families are well informed of these changes or their implications.
Early in Term 3, students will be expected to finalise their choices and submit their selections online through the Subject Selection Online portal. Further specific information and various events will be outlined to everyone in this important mid-year period by Mr Randazzo and as we reach the appropriate time.
