Welcome back to Term 3 2019. With Mrs Fairweather relieving as Principal and Mr Copland off on leave, the Deputy Principals for the remainder of the year will be Ms N Thompson and Mr D O’Hara.
Ms N Thompson is from Swansea High School and will be in charge of Years 8, 10 & 12, whilst Mr D O’Hara will be in charge of Years 7, 9 & 11
We are looking forward to developing a positive relationship with our students and families, to celebrate their successes and to support the students with their academic and personal growth. We encourage you to contact the school as we believe it is important for us to work together to support the students. Our office staff will be able to direct you to the relevant staff member.
We are currently in the middle of subject selections for 2020. Our current Year 10 students have already completed an Information Day with Head Teachers. For the first time, they were required to attend formal interviews with staff and also attend an information evening. All selections were to be completed online by Wednesday 7th August. Any outstanding forms will now be followed up by the Deputy.
Our current Yr 8 students completed their Information Day with Head Teachers on the 7th August and will attend an Information Evening at 5.00pm on the 13th August in the MPC, where they will also receive their unique access code to complete their selections online. Current Yr 9 students will receive subject selection booklets and their selection codes during Year Assemblies on the same day.
It is important for you discuss these choices with your student. Please encourage them to pick subjects that they have a genuine interest in and not just because their friends are doing it. It is very difficult to accommodate class changes next year as the majority of classes will be full and the subject lines will be set.
Looking forward to a productive Semester 2.
Mr O’Hara & Ms Thompson
