Academic Awards Assembly
The Academic Awards Assembly will be held on Tuesday, July 24, commencing at 12.30pm. Students receiving awards should also bring their lunch to the brief rehearsal in the CHC on Monday 23rd at lunchtime.
At this assembly, we recognise students’ academic achievement and progress for all of Semester One, 2018. Parents are most welcome to attend this assembly in the Christine Hartland Centre next week, where certificates will be given to students who received Fine Academic Achievement Awards and Academic Progress Awards as a result of their hard work in Semester One, 2018.
For Years 11 and 12, Fine Academic Achievement Awards are based on the Grade Point Average (GPA) of a 15-point scale. Current Year 11 and Year 12 students are eligible for this award if they received a GPA of 13 or above based on their academic performance in their best 5 subjects in Semester One.
For students in Years 7-10, Fine Academic Achievement Awards are awarded for students who have achieved an overall grade of A in a minimum of 4 subjects, and have a Grade Point Average of greater than 80 on a 100-point scale, for all subjects excluding RVE and Core PE.
For Year 12, Academic Progress Awards are awarded to current Year 12 students for a GPA improvement of 1.0 from Semester Two, 2017 until Semester One, 2018. Year 11 students are not eligible for Academic progress awards as they are undertaking new programs this semester.
For students in Years 7-10, Academic Progress Awards are awarded students based on a GPA improvement of 8 or greater on a 100-point scale, with demonstrable improvement in at least two subjects continued from the previous semester. As students have previously been marked on a 15-point scale, a conversion schedule has been applied to semester 2 2017 results. Considerable scrutiny has been given to ensuring that the conversion to the 100-point scale, followed by the requirement for an 8-point improvement and improvement in at least two continuing subjects identifies students who have made significant progress. The scale will be re-evaluated for the beginning of 2019, when the conversion schedule is no longer in effect.
I thank parents and students for their understanding this semester as our systems from Years 7-10 have been updated in line with changes to senior schooling in Queensland.
Congratulations to the 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. Any questions regarding these awards should be directed to Lynda Wall firstname.lastname@example.org.

OP Prediction meetings
Students in Years 11 and 12 are currently meeting one-on-one with members of the Education Leadership Team to receive their OP predictions based on their results from their Authority subjects studied this semester. This is based on interim information only, and offers a predicted range to give some guidance to students as to their progress towards gaining an OP. A memo will also be sent home to Year 11 parents next week explaining OP predictions and exit levels of achievement. The meetings offer the girls the opportunity to discuss their academic pathways and progress with members of the school leadership. Students should also be discussing the outcomes of these meetings with their parents. It is a good opportunity for students to set some goals in terms of progress for the coming semester. Any student who misses a meeting is responsible for rescheduling by coming to see Mrs Wise in the downstairs administration area of the senior school.
Diploma of Business Years 10 and 11
Students enrolled to commence the Diploma of Business course through Barrington College this semester will be commencing this course in Week 3. During Week 1 and 2, students will be able to use this lesson for private study, but they must attend in the classroom as scheduled. The decision to commence in Week 3 is due to our awareness that students frequently decide to join the cohort subsequent to OP prediction meetings; we anticipate that the class roll will be finalised so that everyone can commence together in Week 3.
This only applies to those students who are newly enrolled in the Diploma program, not to continuing students.
