Public Holidays

King’s Birthday: Monday the 12th June

YEAR 12 RETREAT

The Year 12 is scheduled for Week 1, Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd May. The retreat aims to help Year 12 students bond with their cohort as well as relax, but also has a focus on what is to come for the remainder of their Year 12 journey. There will be team building activities, free time, and an information session on applying for University or TAFE for 2024. This is a topic that will become increasingly important to students as the year progresses, and they begin to consider to their life after school.

SCHOOL JUMPERS

Year 12 Class of 2023 school jumpers and generic school jumpers have now arrived. If you have not collected yours or would like to buy one please see Kate at the Front Office.

CAREERS & EMPLOYMENT EXPO

The College will have a booth at this year’s Adelaide Careers & Employment Expo at the Wayville Showgrounds on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th May.

YEAR 11

Year 11s will finish Semester 1 in Week 9 of Term 2. Exams will be held in the final week of Term 3, Monday 26th June to Friday 30th June.  They will then have a three week semester break and commence Semester 2 at the beginning of Term 3 on Monday 24th July. Year 11s will receive their results from the SACE Board in July for all of the subjects they complete in Semester 1.

In Semester 2, Year 11 students will have the opportunity to pick new subjects and there will be a Subject Expo held in Term 2. This will allow students to speak to subject teachers and myself so they can make an informed decision about their subject choices. A new timetable and subject selection form will be made available later in the term.

YEAR 12

Year 12s will also finish Semester 1 in Week 9 of Term 2. Trial exams will be held in the final week of Term 3, Monday 26th June to Friday 30th June.  They will then have a three week semester break and commence Semester 2 at the beginning of Term 3 on Monday 24th July.

MID YEAR BREAK

The College will have a three week break at the end of Term 2 (1st July – 23rd July) with Term 3 beginning on 24th July. This will ensure that all Year 11s commence the second semester at the same time while ensuring that the College’s timetable is consistent with other SACE schools. It will also allow teachers to undergo professional development at the College during the first week of this extended break.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
