Academic Matters: Week 1

Academic Matters: Week 1

Students are now getting ready for their final exams, with oral exams already starting for languages and Year 12 Chinese Beginner’s starting Monday 21 October. On Monday 4 November, 31 students will sit the two-hour Biology exam and then the final exam will be Specialist Mathematics and Physical Education on Friday 15 November. To find the examination timetable please go Seqta Engage.

I encourage students to make sure that they are familiar with the schedule, all morning exams start at 9am and afternoon exams at 1.30pm. Students should get to the Chapel at least 15 minutes beforehand. 

If illness or an unexpected event occurs for students, then please contact our SACE Coordinator, Mark Horley or 82744218 to arrange the process for special provisions.

A reminder from the recent Elevate study session, where the ten top trends that were identified:

  • Sleep is very important
  • Use the subject assessment guide
  • Use past examination papers
  • Get study groups together
  • Structure swot vac
  • Channelling stress and focus on your health
  • Plenty of options after school if my first preference doesn’t work out
  • Rotate learning areas, so you don’t get bored
  • Get study spaces in order
  • Stress can be good, and we should utilise it

The target date for the 2019 SACE results release is Tuesday 17 December from 8.30am. Students will be able to view their SACE results and SATAC Tertiary Statement (if eligible) via students online.

To login students need their SACE registration number and also a PIN, if you haven’t been onto the site then I recommend that you do before December.


Getting ready for 2020

Student choices are in the process of being finalised for 2020. There have been many students asking for clarification about whether they should study certain subjects or not next year. Students should check out the courses and their requirements very carefully but if they need help, then our Careers Counsellors Belinda Sorensen and Mark Kelly are always there to offer advice or make an appointment to see me.
