*The booking system will be opened from Monday, 3 April at 5pm and close on Monday, 24 April at 5pm.

The interviews will run in two sessions:

Zoom codes will be sent out prior to the session. The instructional video below has been provided to assist you with accessing the Zoom platform – Connecting to a Waverley College Zoom Parent Interview.

You may choose to book your appointments during the face-to-face session or the Zoom session, or you may consider a mixture.

In order to have staff available to as many families as possible, interviews will be of five 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.

Please ensure that you make bookings with your son’s main teacher in instances where one period is taken by another teacher.

Dear Parents and Carers,

We would like to remind you that our CANVAS Learning Management System is open for Years 5 – 12 parents and carers, in lieu of a Term 1 progress report.

This enables parents and carers to be notified when students receive assessment task notifications and results for assessment tasks in real-time, rather than waiting for a static report snapshot.

Further information on the purpose of launching this system, instructions for access, and an outline of what parents and carers can access, can be viewed in the short video below that we released in 2022.

Easier Method for Parent/Carer Sign In

We now have an easier method to sign in for parents/carers via our SSO. Please make sure you save this weblink to your Internet browser for easy access to the login page.

Dear Parents and Carers

Waverley College is participating in a research project titled ‘Early Intervention for Child Problematic Screen Use’ facilitated by Macquarie University, regarding screen use and gaming by students in Years 5-8.

The findings from this project will provide valuable insights into screens and gaming for our student population, and will contribute to the research in Australia around how to prevent and treat those children and families suffering from Gaming Disorder and related problematic screen use.

Students in Years 5-8 will complete an online survey which will include questions about their screen use patterns, relationships, thoughts and feelings. The survey will typically take no longer than 40 minutes and will be completed in class on the dates below:

If you agree for your child to take part in the project, you are not required to do anything else.

At school, your child will also be given an information sheet about the research project and will be able to participate or decline participation, as they wish.

If you do not want your child to participate in the study, please click the button below to fill in your details on page 2 of the ‘Parent Participants Information and Consent Form’ and email it to by Friday, 3 March, 2023.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the above, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Dear Parents/ Carers and Students,

The link to the Years 7-12 Assessment Booklets, on the College Website, was emailed to all Parents/ Carers and Students.  

You can also access the link to the Curriculum page of the College Website HERE. Please scroll down to the relevant year group to access the downloadable booklets.

Students are advised to download a copy of their assessment booklet and transfer the key dates for their subjects into their diaries/ calendars.

Dear  Parents and Carers,

As referenced in the Year 8 Assessment Booklets, there are some mandatory subjects where classes are streamed to ensure that students are supported appropriately and according to their needs. These subjects are Mathematics Years 7-10, English Year 9-10, and Science Years 9-10.

An overview for each of these subjects is outlined below:


Year 9

Class Structure
2 & 6 Streamed top classes of equal aptitude
1,3, 5-9 Mixed ability classes of equal aptitude

Year 10

Class Structure
1 Top streamed class
2 & 3 Streamed classes of equal aptitude
5-9 Mixed ability classes of equal aptitude


Year 7

The Year 7 cohort study Mathematics across two lines. Classes 1- 4 are graded on one line and classes 5-9 are graded on their line.

The grading is as follows within their line:

Line 1 Line 2
07MA01 07MA05
07MA02 07MA06
07MA03 07MA07
07MA04 07MA08

After the completion of the Term 1 Mathematics assessment task, the Mathematics Department will spend considerable time and effort to ensure that all students have been placed in the appropriate class.

Year 8

Class Structure
1 Accelerated (by invitation only)
2 Extension Class
3 & 4 Graded
5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 Mixed ability

Please note that in Year 7 our students study Mathematics on two different lines. If your son was in, for example, 7MA04 last year and is now in 08MA06, this does not mean he has been “demoted”. In Year 7, Maths classes are streamed across two lines (1-4 and 5-9) however, in Year 8, the full cohort is graded across all nine classes.

Year 9

The structure for the Year 9 Mathematics classes for 2023 is as follows:
