Another successful Senior Sub school assembly. Each student studying a Year 12 VCE subject or VET course was provided with the VCE Exam Navigator which outlines all of the important information in regards to the VCE exam period including an exam timetable. Students are reminded that they should ‘ramp up’ and look out for exam preparation sessions being run ( by teachers or outside providers) in order to maximise their opportunities come exam time. At this busy time of the year there are also multiple TAFE and University open days (Especially in August!). Students should make the most of these opportunities whilst they present themselves.
A couple of raffles are running at the moment including the winter warmers raffle (tickets due this Friday 15th Aug) and the recycled batteries all going towards the valedictory evening. The Yarram Country Club has donated $1000 towards this evening and Miss Demaria is after another student to go down and collect the cheque on behalf of the Year 12 group. The VCAL crew have also been busy with fundraising with the success of the Cow Pat Bingo (won by Wyatt Kilgower) and their active participation in the Work Readiness session conducted by ‘Beacon’.
Students were also reminded to stay away from the student car park if they have no reason to be around these vehicles. The Yarram Eisteddfod participants from the senior school were congratulated on their efforts and the ‘G’day USA’ information was provided to all senior students (specifically aimed at current Year 11’s). The information session is on Wednesday 27th August, 2014, 6:00pm (registration from 5:50pm) at South Gippsland Secondary College, Foster. The ‘G’day USA’ Program provides students with the opportunity to live with an American Host Family for ten days and experience daily life in the United States of America.
Finally congratulations to our Vivo Leaders in Year 11 and 12, who have demonstrated outstanding positive/learning behaviours this year at YSC. Emily Lane and Molly Howell were given a ‘lucky’ (or not so lucky) dip in the Senior School prize bin.
