On Monday’s verification day I had a great deal of pleasure sitting on the Maths C District Review Panel as part of the Verification and Moderation process of Senior School Subjects. We have a number of staff who are panel members. These are; Fenton Doolan, Stacey Whyte, Natalie Woolston, Gary Asplin and myself.
These staff give up many hours of their time to review school submissions.They also often miss out on days of preparation time so they can represent our College. I therefore thank them for their dedication to this task. The process of Verification in Year 12 and Moderation in Year 11 is a great opportunity to gain feedback from the various Panel’s on the work of our students.
These first few weeks of Term have been especially busy.
- The RYDA Youth Driver Awareness Program for Year 11 was fantastic. Students were able to learn many varied strategies to assist them to become better and safer drivers.
- The GCC Talent Night was great too. It was particularly good to see talent from across all sectors of the school.
- There have also been some amazing excursions for various subjects as well.
This Thursday we have the final competition for the Legacy Cup. It is a Spelling Competition and will be held in our Assembly time on Thursday. This should be a lot of fun as well and challenging for those who represent their houses.
