From The Deputy
With Jess Batey
We’re now past the half-way mark for the term for our junior students, and almost at the end for our seniors! Term four really does fly by!
In preparation for our incoming Year 7 students in 2022, we have already hosted the first couple of sessions of our extended transition for students with additional needs. These sessions have been hugely successful in providing students with desensitisation to high school, including tours, meeting staff, learning about rules and processes. We’ve been impressed with the effort, engagement and behaviour of the transitioning students, and we’re looking forward to welcoming them all into our school next year. I’d like to acknowledge the hard work of Mr Roby, Mrs Cook and the team at Toolooa House for making the extended transition such a success!
In addition to the extended transition, we will be hosting a transition day for all incoming Indigenous students on Friday of week 8 (details via primary schools), then 2 full orientation days for all incoming students on Monday and Tuesday of week 9.
To be eligible to attend our orientation days, students must be enrolled in our school (paperwork must be submitted in advance).
The next couple of weeks will be very busy for our students as they engage in drafting, assignments and exams. Please support your child with their time management by looking ahead at their assessment calendar and planning for uninterrupted study time. This will help them to get the best out of their learning, and it will reduce their stress levels during the busiest periods.
Our Year 12 students are currently finalising their external exams, prior to moving into next week’s alternate program. I wish our exiting cohort all the very best for the final two weeks of their high school career. This is a tremendous cohort of students and we know that they will achieve some great things as they graduate our school.
