All students will receive an email next Wednesday 13 November, with a list of their elective subjects for 2020 in preparation for the beginning of our Step Up program beginning Wednesday 20 November. This involves all students from Years 7-11 moving into their 2020 classes. The aim of the program is to give students a head start on their 2020 classes, to learn their timetable, and meet their teachers. This program means that the end of year period is utilised for worthwhile learning activities, and the beginning of next year is smooth.
Student timetables will be uploaded to Schoolbox on Monday 18 November. Normal classes are suspended for this day to allow for the Annual Excellence Awards ceremony as well as providing an opportunity for homeroom, year level and house assemblies.
And a reminder that Tuesday 19 November is a student-free day to enable teachers to finalise 2019 and prepare for Step Up classes.
Before and during Step Up, students will have an opportunity to request subject changes. Not all subject changes will be possible due to classes being full or clashes between other subjects. Applications must be made with the appropriate form which will be available from the relevant campus assistant, and must include a parent / guardian signature. VCE students must also consult a careers advisor before submitting their application. Applications for subject changes open on Wednesday 13 November and close Wednesday 27 November. Please be aware that after this date, no further changes can be made until the end of Semester One, 2020.
Because students will not have their textbooks or book-listed resources before Step Up, staff will be working on the premise that students will bring their device and basic stationery to classes. Paper copies of the 2020 book lists will be distributed to students in Years 7-9 on Wednesday 13 November and to Yr 10 and 11 students after exams. Digital versions of the book lists are located on the College website here and will be updated on Wednesday 13 November.
