As the Year 11s enter the “homestretch” for this semester, it is important to remember that these last two weeks are an essential time to commence their work on either VCE Unit 2, or the continued IB course of study. Additionally, all Year 11 students who are currently enrolled in a Unit 3/4 class will be taking the GAT today between 10am and 1.15pm in the CM Wood and Anderson Centres. As such, we will be reviewing the required procedures and times on Tuesday during Utility time. It would be wise for students to arrive at school no later than 9.15 am to ensure a smooth start to this examination. Students are reminded that they are unable to bring electronic devices into the examination room for the GAT and that they must have their school ID cards with them.
The last two weeks of Term 2 is also a time for all Year 11 students to reflect on their achievements for the first half of the year, as well as plan how to improve upon any areas where they feel they could have achieved more success.
On the last day of Term 2, Friday 23 June, Year 11 students will be allowed to leave school at the end of Assembly – which is scheduled from 12.30 – 1pm on this day. The early departure is in recognition of the Year 11 Formal being scheduled for the evening at Linley Estate in Kilsyth and the keenness of the Year 11s to have time to get ready for this enjoyable culmination to a very busy Semester 1.
