The Year 10 students have returned to school with their usual energy after a busy end to Semester 1. The employer Work Experience evaluation forms are currently being received by the Careers Department and students will receive a photocopy next week.
In pastoral sessions we are busy providing the background information to assist students with the subject selection process as we realise that this is an important decision for them. The final subject selection individual interviews are occurring with the Careers staff. Mrs Chris Millgate-Smith provided a clear overview of the VCE English options on Monday 18 July and Mr Jason McManus explained the online process on Tuesday 19 July in preparation for the Subject Showcase on Wednesday 20 July. An electronic copy of the Senior College Course and Subject Guide 2017 can be found on the Portal under the Useful Information folder at: http://portal.tintern.vic.edu.au/homepage/3858
A copy of the Year 10 Supplement in the Herald Sun has been ordered for all students to allow them to view the pre-requisite subjects for tertiary entrance in 2019 and pastoral time has been allocated on Thursday 21 July to review this material.
Congratulations to Peter Cobb
During the recent holidays Peter travelled to Sydney for the Under 15 Years National Fencing Championships along with around 400 young Fencers from not only Australia but New Zealand and Singapore. Despite an ongoing injury that affected his preparation, Peter was awarded second or Silver in the Individual Under 15 Years Epee event and gained another Silver result as part of the Victorian Epee team.
As a result of these outstanding achievements, Peter has been invited to become part of the Australian National Under 17 Years fencing team that are expected to compete in the World Championships in Bulgaria early next year.
