The Year 10 students presented their House Community Action Project (House CAP) during the last week of Term 3 to a Year 9 student audience. The winning House was Somner-Stewart and points were awarded for the quality of the videos, formal presentations and the way in which students worked together showing such skills as team work, organisation and initiative.
Metec Driving and First Aid Courses
Applications from students wishing to participate in the optional METEC Driving Course and the Level 2 First Aid course at the end of the year are required to submit their forms into Reception by Friday 16 October.
Practice examinations were held for students undertaking a Unit 3 and 4 course of study and Year 12 IB students in the second week of the holidays. This was a valuable opportunity for students to refine their examination technique and to gain an understanding about their strengths and weaknesses. This feedback is imperative so that students can target areas requiring further consolidation in the final weeks of classes. A reminder for Year 12 families that scholarship applications and supporting documentation via VTAC are due on Friday 16 October at 5.00pm and that the final day for all Year 12 students is Tuesday 20 October.
Ace Your Exams
Year 10 students participated in the Elevate Education ‘Ace Your Exams’ workshop on Thursday 8 October. The student feedback was most positive about the content and delivery style from the young presenters. Material included common mistakes in examination preparation, the 7 steps for preparation excellence and the 3 steps to examination room excellence.
