With winter now upon us and the days getting colder and darker, it has been encouraging and impressive to see our Bosco students continuing to put in an effort in the things we do. For some weeks now I have had the privilege of watching and listening to students rehearse for their various MADD day activities. I also note that our Yr 12 VCE cohort are on the verge of completing Unit 3 while the VCAL students continue to work towards demonstrating competency in their modules. Not forgetting, of course, that the Year 10 and 11 students begin exams on Wednesday, 6 June.
Sadly, not every MADD day act can win and not every students’ assessment will reflect the effort and energy that went into its preparation. However, while effort is hard to measure it is easy to recognize and I am delighted to report that, even in this dark and bleak weather, I continually see evidence of students giving their best in the many and various ways a school asks of them.
By now, all Bosco students with exams should be aware of what their individual commitments are and where and when they need to be at the College. I encourage all families to take the time to discuss whether these commitments require a change to usual school routines. I’m especially mindful of the 8.40am start time for morning exams. Also, students should be aware that they are only required to attend their exams but, should they wish to stay on site throughout the day, they must sign in at the Student Hub, and base themselves in the canteen.
Good luck to all sitting exams in the coming weeks.
