Year 12 Term 1 Reports

From Mr Chris Soden, Assistant Director of Curriculum

The Year 12 Term 1 Progress Report is now available for you to view and download on the Parent Lounge in TASS.

This report gives you your son’s Learner Profile grades, mark, rank and cohort rank number (number of students in the course) based on his assessment task(s) for each subject completed up to this point. If a mark and rank for a subject is not included in this report, then the first HSC Assessment Task in that subject has not yet been assessed. VET subjects do not include a mark or rank as they are competency-based subjects. Please note that the front page only lists subjects where a mark is available.

Further information about how your son has performed in his cohort is available via the Parent Lounge Analytics.

The link to the Parent Lounge is below.

World’s Greatest Shave

From Mr Damien Thompson, Head of Lacey House

Lacey House and Waverley College are taking part in the World’s Greatest Shave for the Leukaemia Foundation! We are on a mission to shave the world from blood cancer. Please sponsor us to give families facing blood cancer the emotional and practical support they need.

You’ll also fund vital research to help more people survive blood cancer, while improving their quality of life. Every day another 47 Australians are diagnosed with blood cancer. That’s one Aussie every 31 minutes. Although research is improving survival, sadly, an Australian loses their life to blood cancer every two hours. 

Will you help by sponsoring us? Please click the link below to sponsor us today!

The top dozen fundraisers had their heads shaved at the College Assembly on Thursday 11 March. All students are encouraged to support this fundraiser, with Lacey House students expected to lead by example in this important House event.

Luna Park Tragedy Remembered – ABC Tuesday 16 March 8.30pm – 3-part documentary

This 9 June will mark the 42nd anniversary of the Luna Park fire, which claimed the lives of four Year 8 Waverley students in 1979. They were close friends Jonathan Billings, Richard Carroll, Michael Johnson and Seamus Rahilly – all aged 13. The boys had gone to Saturday evening Mass with classmate Jason Holman, before setting out for a winter night’s enjoyment at Luna Park. They were riding the ghost train when a fire broke out and the boys died inside the ride.

This devastating event deeply shocked our College community at the time and is still a vivid and heartbreaking memory for those who experienced it first-hand. A plaque in our College chapel remembers the four lively boys. We retain strong connections to their families and our thoughts and those of Old Boys are always with them.

Former Waverley College teacher Brother Brian Murphy would like all in the College community to know that on Tuesday 16 March 8.30pm the ABC is broadcasting Part 1 of a new documentary, exposing elements of the Luna Park ghost train fire tragedy. While the fire was deemed a horrific accident by authorities, many believe foul play, despite numerous inquiries.

Journalist Ms Caro Meldrum-Hanna re-investigates the tragic event with unprecedented access to the key people involved, including eyewitnesses, police, investigators, and government insiders who have never spoken before.
