Curriculum Report – From the Director of Studies

Congratulations to the Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 students who received awards in recognition of their excellent commitment to learning during Semester 1 at the College Academic Assemblies this week. All students are encouraged to strive to achieve their potential in 2023 by consistently applying themselves with diligence in all aspects of their studies this semester.

Year 8 into 9 Elective Courses

This week, Year 8 students have received information on the various elective courses offered at the College and attended Course presentations to help them to select electives that they will enjoy and/or are suited to their future study and career aspirations. The 2024 Years 9 & 10 Course Information booklet has also been emailed to parents and carers to enable you to support and guide your children as they make their elective choices for the next two years.

Student’s elective selections will be due for submission on Thursday, 10th August.

Year 10 into 11 Interviews

A reminder to Year 10 parents and carers that appointments have been made for interviews to discuss each student’s pattern of study for Year 11 in 2024. If a student is planning to undertake study at TAFE or is hoping to acquire an apprenticeship, there will be the opportunity to discuss this with the College Careers Advisor, Mr Garry Cajar. These interviews will be held in the Edmund Rice Centre from 2:30- 6:30pm. I look forward to meeting parents, carers and students on this day.

Trial Higher School Certificate Examinations

We wish all students sitting their Trial HSC Exams all the very best of luck for these exams which commence on Monday, 31st July and conclude on Monday 14th August. We ask members of the College community to please keep our Year 12 students in your prayers during this time. Students without an exam on Monday 14th August return to their normal timetabled classes on this day. Year 12 students and parents/carers have been emailed important NESA rules and procedures for these examinations to support all students being prepared to achieve their best.

Please feel free to contact me should you have any queries around your child’s studies at the College.

Mrs Bell
Director of Studies
