Senior School Report

The Senior School welcomed a visit from Christine, a member of the Wellington Youth council. Christine explained how to become involved in the council that is open to youths from the ages of 12 – 25. Any students who did not receive an information brochure and would like to apply can collect one from their sub-school leader.

With approximately five weeks to go for Year 12 students and nine weeks for Year 11s, Senior students were reminded about the importance of working hard in all subjects and making good use of study periods, to ensure success.

Students were reminded about signing up for the Access Education VCE Revision workshops, which students needed to sign up for/enroll with Miss Demaria by the end of the week.

Senior teachers are also holding revision and/or exam days at the Secondary College over the spring break. A timetable will be provided to students next week. Any students who would like to make the most of these study days or feel that they would like more study time with their teacher should make an effort to attend.

Students were prompted to make use of ‘Beat Maths’ on Mondays and ‘Fixing Lit’ on Tuesdays after school. These one-hour study sessions after school are a great way for students to receive assistance, revise and stay up to date with their work.

Miss Demaria also reminded any Year 12 students who have not yet submitted their baby photos for Valedictory, to please submit them to her ASAP.

Any students in Year 11 who have not yet submitted their ‘Fit2drive’ excursion forms were asked to do so ASAP. The workshop is an initiative that is dedicated to reducing youth road trauma. Its focus is “building the capacity of young people to make good decisions when faced with risky driving situations, whether as a passenger or a driver. F2D is about changing attitudes and behaviours – not teaching driving skills.”

All students in the Senior School were encouraged to continue to display outstanding behavior within the school community. The Vivo Leader Boards were revisited and once again the current number-one position was Stephen Hunter in Year 11 and Molly Howell in Year 12. Each of these students was allowed a ‘lucky dip’ in the prize bin to reward them for demonstrating positive behaviors at Y.S.C.
