An email was sent out to parents detailing the exam procedures. The College also has the following expectations of students during normal school hours when the exam block is held:
- All students are either at College or at home unless under the direct supervision of a parent or caregiver.
- Students must not loiter in town, at shops or cafes whilst travelling to and from school.
- Students are not allowed to leave the school grounds to purchase food or drinks.
Students found in town during school hours will be brought back to school and will lose the privileges we are affording them.
After sitting exams, it is important students get feedback on ways to improve. This is the primary purpose of Thursday 25 and Friday 26 June. Please do not allow your child to extend their holiday but rather insist that they come to school and find out how they went on assessments. Year 12 students will also be sitting QCS practice on Wednesday 24 June.
Last Thursday we had a great day of sport and social interaction between students and staff. It was fantastic to see so much school spirit and interaction happening. Sport carnivals are not just about who is the fastest or the strongest. There are great life skills to be learnt from mixing socially, working as a team and supporting one another. It was great to see so many students “giving it a go”.
Unfortunately some students chose to stay away; irrespective of me stating that this was a compulsory event. It is vital that we work together in partnership, as parents and teachers, to help our young people realise the value of such events. I therefore respectfully request that all parents support the College as we endeavour to teach children the importance of a holistic education.
