August has been a busy month for Information Evenings and discussions around student selections for 2019.
During Futures classes, year 10 students attended subject information sessions during which Domain leaders /Specialist teachers explained what was involved in each available VCE subject. They then spent class time researching possible careers, courses and prerequisites in preparation for selecting courses for 2019.
The VCE Information Evening was held in the College Library on Thursday 2nd August. Both Year 10 and Year 11 students were given
information on Future Careers, what to consider when choosing subjects in VCE and how the selection process works. Parents and students were also able to talk to subject teachers about what was involved in each of the available subjects.
During the following week, on Thursday 9th August, it was the turn of current Year 9 students and their parents to hear about moving into year 10 and the Senior School, and what this entailes.
I would like to thank all the parents and students who attended the Information Evenings, and the staff who made themselves available.
Following the Information Evenings, the Year 10 into 11 Course Selection Day was held on Friday 10th August in the College Library. All year 10 students were allocated an appointment time for a one-on-one discussion with a course counsellor in order to select their Unit 1 and 2 units.
Year 12 students are currently applying for tertiary study in 2019 and, in preparation for making such applications, attended a lunchtime session run by Mrs Jakubicki. This presentation was designed to give them information about how to find courses they may be interested in, how to apply for them through VTAC (Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre), how to apply for both SEAS (Special Entry Access Scheme) and scholarships, when and how they can make preference changes and what to do when they receive an offer.
I would like to thank Mrs Voula Jakubicki, our Careers Coordinator, for running this information session for our Year 12 students.
