PARENT / TEACHER INTERVIEWS
I would also like to draw to your attention Parent/Teacher Interviews to be held on Thursday 30th April. Interviews are to be held from 4pm until 6pm including refreshments, in the Convent building courtyard.
I will also be available to discuss QTAC and career information for interested year 12 students and Parents/Carers.
Students in years 7 and 9 will be consolidating skills explicitly taught in Term 1, and experiencing some NAPLAN practice tests early in term 2. NAPLAN testing days are 12-14th May 2015. Please encourage your student to work positively towards achieving well. This is moment-in-time data, and we encourage all students to give their best effort.
This year there will be an extra information report coming home with NAPLAN results—it will detail specific answers your student has given and align them with the state percentage.
Congratulations to all of our Year 11 and 12 students who have been working hard through Exam Block this week. Enjoy a happy and holy Easter break, and I look forward to seeing you refreshed and ready for another hectic term. Many thanks, Janine Conolly
YEAR 7 AND 8 CAMP
With Year 7 and 8 students and home form teachers having camp at Camp Tinaroo, the question on the forefront of everyone's mind was "What is Cyclone Nathan going to be doing?". To ensure all of our students were safe, we had the camp dates limited to one
night. This meant on the morning of the camp a renewed program was developed and executed. The four instructors led activities with instructors from Barrabadeen Activity Centre. Students had equal opportunity to participate in these activities (Raft building and testing, walk about some of the lake, survival skills and team activities).
Seeing the students at the activities was fantastic, most students participated in a respectful, responsible and safe manner. Thank you also must be directed to catering from a local home cooking business and Schmid's bus service for changing their schedule to help our children be fed appropriately and returned home safely.
