TERM 4 NEWSLETTER 2019

Welcome to the final term of the school year!

STAGE 2

End of Year SACE Exams

It is almost the end of the year for the Stage 2s and they have all worked hard at making it to the end of their schooling.

 

By now you should all have received an email containing the SACE exams timetable commencing in Week 4 (week beginning 4th November). Students will also have received their official SACE slip with the times and dates of their exams. There are physical copies available at reception, an electronic version on our website in our Coming Events page or the exam timetable is also available on the SACE Website here.

 

The end of year SACE exams commence on Monday 4th November and go until Monday 18th November.

 

It is imperative that students attend each of their SACE exams even if unwell. If the invigilator and / or student feels they have been disadvantaged by illness then a specific process outlined by SACE needs to be followed and a special medical appraisal must be completed by the student’s doctor. This process can only occur after the exam. A doctor’s certificate will not be sufficient evidence to present to the SACE Board.

SACE results will come out on Tuesday 17th December at 8.30am. Students can logon to their SACE account and access their results prior to receiving the official transcript in the mail.

Stage 2 Presentation Night

Wednesday 20th November 5:30-10pm, at the Adelaide Pavilion situated in Veale Gardens on the corner of South Terrace and Peacock Road.

This is the first year it will be held after the exams, this change has been done after consultation with former students who felt that the evening would be more relaxing once everybody had completed finished their schooling.

STAGE 1

While the primary focus may appear to be on Stage 2s and helping them get to the finish line, our Stage 1s have not been forgotten. It is essential that they finish the year with a sense of accomplishment and feel ready to move into Stage 2 next year.

 

Term 4 goes for 6 weeks with exams being held in the final week, the 18th to the 22nd November.

Students who have not completed all class work or their Research Project will be required to attend school in Week 7.

It is imperative that all Stage 1s do complete their Research Project this year as non-completion will result in them having to reconsider their subject options for 2020.
