Currently the Year 12s are in the midst of their final assessments for Semester 1, with a number of VCE SACs and IB Internal Assessments to be completed over the next two weeks. The students will undertake the GAT on Wednesday 14 June 2017 from 10am to 1pm in the CM Wood and Anderson Centres. 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.
On a lighter note, Year 12 students enjoyed “Hump Day” on Wednesday 7 June, which began with a pyjama-themed breakfast in the Compass Café attended by all students and pastoral staff. The students then enjoyed a pizza lunch with ‘Mr Whippy’ dropping by to provide ice-creams and the celebrations concluding with a presentation and activities in the afternoon. Thanks must go to the leadership team and Mr Kenny for organising a successful celebration of the 2017 cohort’s “Hump Day”.
On the last day of Term 2, Friday 23 June, Year 12 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 12 Formal being scheduled for the evening at Bram Leigh Receptions in Croydon and the keenness of the Year 12s to have time to get ready for this enjoyable culmination to a very busy Semester 1.
