The final two weeks of term have been very busy for Year 12 students. The VCE students have been busy studying for a number of SACs and the IB students have been preparing for their Extended Essay presentations and getting a number of their Internal Assessments underway.
It has been an exciting time for many of the Year 12 students as they have had opportunities to showcase their talents and leadership skills. Many of the lead and support roles in this year’s production ‘Hairspray’ were performed by Year 12 students. All of these students not only performed magnificently but were able to manage a demanding study schedule in between rehearsals and performances. The Year 12 House Captains have also been busy preparing, organising and leading their Houses for the House Music event that will take place in Term 2.
In the up and coming holidays, the Year 12 students are strongly encouraged to make sure they get some well-earned rest as well as focusing on eating well and exercising. In Term 2 the work load for many students will become greater and starting the term refreshed and healthy will be a definite advantage. Of course, they are also encouraged to dedicate time to their studies and making sure, they are up-to-date with all their work. A study timetable or allocating specific study days during the break is a great way to ensure this happens!
