Senior College News
It feels rather surreal to be entering the final week of Term 3 but I know that students are looking forward to some recovery time and they will need to devise some creative holiday at home ideas. My thanks are expressed to the staff for their tireless work and full credit to our wonderful Senior College students for their perseverance during the term. In particular, I am also grateful to an enthusiastic group of Year 10 and 11 students who will be working in a mentoring role with the Grade 6 girls on Wednesday 15 September.
Vaccination Webinar for Young People – Tuesday 14 September from 6.00pm to 7.00pm
The school has been sent details about a vaccination webinar that is created for young people as the details are below:
“The Victorian Department of Health is conducting a webinar for young people, presented by medical practitioners, on the COVID-19 immunisation program. It will also provide advice for young people on supporting their mental health. The aim is to ensure young people can make an informed choice about getting the vaccine.
The webinar will be held on Tuesday, 14 September, from 6.00 pm – 7.00 pm AEST. You can find more details and register to attend here.
Collection of Practice Papers and Learning Materials – Year 12 Students and Year 11 Students Undertaking a Unit 3 and 4 Subject
On Friday 17 September students undertaking a final year subject have been given access to the school between 8.00am and 4.00pm to collect practice papers or materials that cannot be sent electronically and final details will be sent to students with a booking link to manage student numbers on campus.
Reminders for Year 12 Students
Timely VTAC applications close 30 September and I have been encouraging domestic students to apply for SEAS where relevant. In particular, all students should complete the Category 1 and Category 4.6 relating to the impacts of COVID-19 on their learning. They must complete the table in their VTAC account. SEAS closes on 8 October at 5pm. Further information can be obtained from https://www.vtac.edu.au/.
The ACU Guarantee closing date has been extended to Friday 8 October but the following courses have an earlier closing date of Friday 24 September 2021:
Bachelor of Midwifery
Bachelor of Nursing
Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor of Business Administration
Bachelor of Nursing/ Bachelor of Paramedicine
Bachelor of Occupational Therapy
Bachelor of Paramedicine
Bachelor of Speech Pathology
The latest editions of Career News also have a range of information relevant to all Senior College students so some holiday reading. I do hope the students find enjoyment during the school holidays and information about any return to school arrangements will be communicated to families as they become available to the school from the Victorian Government.
