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 ‘Oklahoma!’ 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. A special mention goes to the very talented Ryan Tierney and Cassie Jones who were the stars of the show in their lead roles of ‘Curly’ and ‘Laurey’ respectively. 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.
Careers and specifically Tertiary education has also been a focus for Year 12 students. Students have been making appointments to discuss their pathways with Careers counsellor, Mrs Heather Ruckert. In their Utility sessions they have been introduced to the careers websites and other useful links. There have also been a number of ‘Career Chats’ where students interested in specialised fields and processes to apply to Tertiary Institutions can come along and find out more information.
