Academic Matters: Week 3

Academic Matters: Week 3

We have started the year celebrating the achievements of our 2020 cohort, with fifty students inducted to the Scotch90 Club. 

Our students have chosen a variety of pathways including: Psychology, Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapy, Nutrition and Dietetics, Podiatry, Nursing, Midwifery, Paramedic Science, Optometry, Law, Medicine, Engineering, Commerce, Agriculture and Viticulture.

Our current Year 12s have started the year very well with seven students receiving merits last year. Over the next few weeks, the Careers Counsellors will be asking students to provide them with information about possible career paths and I will be meeting with all students to go over their goals and work out predicted ATARs if needed, for courses. 

 

The SACE and Electronic Assessment

Year 12 English Literary Studies was the first examination to be conducted online. Since then, Psychology, Modern History, Biology and Nutrition have all had electronic examinations. French will have an electronic examination this year. Students have been submitting their examinations online through SEQTA since Year 10. 

Please find the Year 12 examination timetable here

 

Homework

Our staff make homework visible in SEQTA using a homework timetable. You can find the homework schedule under documents or on the dashboard (choose to display homework in options). Students from Year 7 – 10 have different amounts of time that they should be spending on homework:

  • Year 7 students should spend 45 minutes on homework each night. (No homework set on Friday)
  • Year 8 students 60 minutes 
  • Year 9 students 75 -100 minutes, and
  • Year 10 students approximately 120 minutes on homework each night. 

 

SACE Reminders

Students in the Senior School can check their SACE subjects (Stage 1 and 2) through the following students online. To login students need their SACE registration number and also a PIN – the PIN is a four-digit number, birthdate (day and month).  I suggest that students go to the site to check their postal address. If the address needs to be updated then please contact, Mark Horley SACE coordinator.

If you are new to SACE and missed information sessions last year, then please go to the following to help you understand how the SACE works. If you have any questions, then please ask me.

Many students have been reassessing what they have chosen to study for 2021 and over the first few days, changes have been made to students’ timetables. By the end of week 3 students should have decided what they will be studying for the year as it becomes very difficult to change courses and catch up on new ones – as assessments have already started. If you have any questions or need clarification, then do not hesitate to contact me.
