All students have now been emailed a list of their elective subjects for 2019 in preparation for the beginning of our Step Up program, which begins on Tuesday 20 November. This involves all students from Years 7-11 moving into their 2019 classes. The aim of the program is to give students a head start on their 2018 classes, to learn their timetable, and to 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 Friday 16 November. Normal classes are suspended for this day to allow for the College awards morning as well as providing an opportunity for homeroom, year level, and house assemblies, so that students can farewell their current homeroom teacher and, for some students, their campus, before moving into the 2019 timetable.
And a reminder that Monday 19 November is a student-free day to enable teachers to finalise 2018 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 has been emailed to all students and is 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. The deadline for applications is Friday 23 November. Please be aware that no further changes can be made after this date until the end of Semester One, 2019.
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 2019 book lists have been distributed to students in Years 7-9 and will be distributed to Year 10 and 11 students after exams. Digital versions of the book lists are located on the College website on each Campus page. Click the links below to view.
