TERM 4 NEWSLETTER 2020

Due to COVID19 this has been a very strange year and one in which most of the activities have been cancelled that make the final year of schooling less stressful.

 

It is important to note that all SACE exams will be held at the College and that Year 12 classes will be held as normal prior to the commencement of the exams.

TERM DATES & PUBLIC HOLIDAYS

Term 4 Dates: Monday 12th October until Friday 27th November (end date will vary for some students).

Public Holidays

None

STAGE 2 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 2nd 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, a version on our website https://muirden.sa.edu.au/events/month/  or it is also available on the SACE Website at the following address https://www.sace.sa.edu.au/studying/assessment/exams/timetable

 

The SACE exams commence on Monday 2nd November with the final exam being held on Monday 16th 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 should be out the week prior to Christmas, I will notify you of the time immediately once it is made official. Students can logon to their SACE account and access their results prior to receiving the official transcript in the mail.

YEAR 12 PRESENTATION NIGHT

The Presentation Night will be held on Wednesday 18th November 5:30pm to 10pm, at the Adelaide Pavilion situated in Veale Gardens on the corner of South Terrace and Peacock Road.

Because of COVID19 official policy this year the numbers are limited however it still promises to be a significant evening in which students can celebrate the end of their schooling with their peers. It should be a very relaxing evening when all have completed their studies.

YEAR 11 / STAGE 1

Rest assured Year 11 Students have not been forgotten even though the primary focus may appear to be on Stage 2s and helping them get to the finish line.  It is essential that all Year 11 Students finish the year with a sense of accomplishment and feel ready to move into Year 12 / Stage 2 next year.

 

Term 4 goes for 6 weeks with exams being held in the final week, Monday the 16th to Friday the 20th November.

 

Students who have not completed all class work or their Research Project will be required to attend school in Week 7 (Monday 23rd November to Friday 27th November).

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.

COLLEGE OPEN TIMES

The College will remain open between 8am – 5pm until Friday November 27th.  Between Monday 30th November and Friday 11th December it will be open between 9-4.

It will reopen on the morning the Year 12 results are released.

CAREERS EXPO

The Adelaide Careers and Employment Expo, at which the College was to have a stall, will be held on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th October, come and see us there!

 

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