Year 12 Trial Examinations take place in Week 5; they have been preparing diligently for these important assessments. The results of these exams will be an important opportunity for students to consider the further preparation that will be required as they approach their final HSC exams. Practical exams for Performing Arts subjects are occurring this week and next week. We wish all students the best for their exams, and we remind them that continued resilience and focus will see them through.
Many Year 12 students are nearing the completion of major works in a range of subjects, including Visual Arts, Textiles, Multimedia, Society and Culture and the extension subjects. Students’ works are exceptional, demonstrating their creativity and skill, as well as their persistence. It is a great joy to the entire school community to see their works emerging.
This year has been very difficult for all students, but particularly for Year 12 students who will need to make many concessions to their usual end of school rituals and rites of passage. As we work with the students on shaping a different, but special graduation program, we have continued to be impressed and humbled by their graciousness in the way they have accepted the decisions we are required to make. They truly are women of mercy, and they do great credit to their families. More detailed communication to Year 12 families about the graduation program will be sent next week.
