Year 7 to 12 Interviews

The Year 9, 10 and 12 Parent/Teacher/Student Interviews will be held on Tuesday, 23 July and Year 7, 8 and 11 interviews will be held on Monday, 29 July. Interviews on both of these days will take place between 8.30am and 6.30pm.

All interviews will be held by Zoom and a video on how to set up a Zoom Meeting has been provided by IT here.

Bookings for these interviews can be made through the Parent Lounge in TASS. Bookings will open on Monday, 24 June at 9am and will close on Friday, 19 July at 3.30pm for Year 9, 10 and 12, and Friday, 26 July at 3.30pm for Year 7, 8 and 11.

There will be no classes or sport training for any Senior School students on either of these days.

A list of zoom account numbers will be sent by IT to all parents prior to the interview dates. This will usually be a day or two before the interviews. You do not need the zoom code to make your bookings.

In order to have staff available to as many families as possible, interviews will be of 5 minutes duration. To make the process as efficient as possible and to minimise lost time, we ask that you don’t make consecutive bookings and leave at least a five minute gap between your bookings to allow time to move between meetings with the teachers.

The following staff will not be available for interviews;

The workshop will be run by a Legal Aid solicitor, and will cover legal definitions of sexual consent, offences relating to non-consent, as well as ethical consent frameworks.

We are running a series of workshops designed to enhance English and Writing skills as Year 12 students work toward the HSC. All students in Year 12 Standard and Advanced English courses are expected to attend both workshops at least once.

Students must register for these workshops which will be conducted in P6 on Mondays and before school on Thursday morning (7:30am-8:30am). Registrations will be capped at 25 students per workshop.

*Students are advised to check their email for notification of registration.

Details of the workshops are as follows:

Workshop 1 – Effective Paragraph Writing
Facilitator: Ms Mary Ryan – Head of Literacy

Time: P6 Monday (Begins Monday, 20 May 2024) | Before school on Thursday (7:30am-8:30am)

Venue: WO5

This workshop is relevant to all subjects which require the writing of long answer responses and extended responses. Focus will be on the following:

Students will be expected to bring along a sample of their own work (long answer/ extended response) which has already been marked. This can be from any subject.

Workshop 2 – Interpreting Marking Criteria in English
Facilitator: Ms Helen Barrie – Head of Academic Enrichment

Time: Before school on Thursday (7:30am-8:30am)

Venue: K24

This workshop examines the precise elements that support an HSC marker’s decision to determine which band your essay sits in. By matching your essay with the specific criteria of each band, you will learn how to tighten and elevate your essay compositions to ensure they precisely convey your overarching thesis and establish a strong writer/reader relationship with the marker.

Students will be expected to bring along a sample of one of their English responses.

As we are well into Term 2, with a myriad of assignments well underway and preparations for the upcoming Trial and HSC exams already starting to take off, the senior library team have given the HSC resources section a much needed ‘face-lift’!

After looking at how to make the section more user friendly, in consultation with last year’s Year 12 students, we found that simple subject signage, instead of the traditional dewey system signs, would be easier to navigate.

Updated HSC Resource Section

Students are now able to see exactly where the study guides and past exam papers are for their selected subjects and in the case of Mathematics and English, sorted by strand as well, ensuring that they can find their chosen resources easier and quicker, with a few students saying that it is much more ‘practical’ and more ‘user friendly’ :)

Updated HSC Resource Section

We are constantly updating the section, adding new study resources regularly and we are always open to any recommendations!

We hope that this ‘revitalised’ resource section is of greater help for our senior students, with many borrowings ahead!

Updated HSC Resource Section
