Subject changes for Semester One close at the end of this week. Students should return any subject change forms immediately so that they don’t miss further crucial work.
QCS test application for Special Provision
Applications for special provisions for the Queensland Core Skills Test open on March 25 and close on May 21 for students with long-term impairments. If any current Year 12 student believes they are eligible for special provisions for the QCS test (e.g. use of a computer, separate seating) please contact Ms Wall to establish what documentation is required, and to confirm an appointment time to complete the application in late March or April.
Academic Awards and Honours Assembly
The Honours Assembly this year will recognise both the academic achievements of students in Years 4-11 from Semester Two 2018 but will also showcase the students who graduated last year with an OP 1-5. Parents of Senior School students will have been contacted if their daughter is receiving an award at this event. The Honours assembly will be held on Tuesday, February 19 in the CHC and will commence at 8.40am.
Students are advised that there is a rehearsal at lunch time for all award winners on Monday February 18 in the CHC at 1:30pm.
For current years 8-11, Fine Academic Achievement Awards are based on the achievement of both a grade point average of greater than 80 on a 100-point scale, and an A standard achievement in the majority of subjects studied, with the exclusion of RVE and Core PE. Current Year 12 students are eligible for this award if they have received a GPA of 13 or above based on their best 5 subjects in Semester Two, 2017.
Academic Progress Awards are awarded to current Years 8-10 students for a GPA improvement of greater than 8 in their second semester of 2018. Year 11 students are not awarded Academic Progress Awards until semester two when they have completed 12 months in senior subjects. Progress awards are awarded to current Year 12 students for a GPA improvement of greater than 1.0 on a 15-point scale.
Congratulations to the following students who will receive their awards at that Assembly. Please note that Junior School students receiving these awards will be contacted through the Junior School.
