A huge thank you to our Year 7 and 9 students and families for your promptness and participation in our recent NAPLAN testing. We see NAPLAN as another way to track student literacy and numeracy outcomes and encourage all to participate. We were extremely happy with the way that most students conducted themselves during this period, especially our Year 7s as it can be daunting doing exams in such a large space. Thank you also to the staff involved, especially Ben Moss-Holland for his exceptional organisation.
The General Achievement Test (GAT) for all students studying a Unit 3 and 4 subject (Year 12) is on Wednesday 12 June 2019, 10.00am – 1.15pm. This is an important test and we encourage all of our students to take it seriously and try their best. Please help us ensure they have the following equipment; an English and/or bilingual printed dictionary (a thesaurus or a combined thesaurus-dictionary is not permitted), pens, pencils, sharpener and an eraser. These things should be carried in a clear zip-lock bag. No pencil cases or calculators are permitted.
For more information on the GAT please use the link below.
Past GAT papers for practice can be found here.
Our end of semester exams are fast approaching and timetables will be available shortly. In terms of helping your child to prepare for the exams here are some tips.

We have decided to open the Bosco subject changes this week, to give Year 10 and 11 students extra time to make changes before their exams. Your child will receive an email about this process and changes will be made on a first in, first served basis. Subjects can become full quickly, so we encourage you to get on to this asap. This process will open for all other year levels on Monday 27 May.
