Year 11 2020 Subject Selection Process

On 9 April, Year 10 parents received an email from the Learning Office regarding the Subject Selection Process.  This process comprises three steps and will be implemented throughout this term.

  1. Morrisby Online Career and Aptitude Assessment Program – students have now completed
  2. Subject Selection Evening
  3. Subject Selection Plenary Meeting

 

SUBJECT SELECTION EVENING

Wednesday 5 June  | 7pm – 8.30pm 
GBC 3.01 to 3.04

The evening commences with a presentation about the HSC, which provides an overview of the core subject areas of English, Mathematics, Religion and Science.  Parents and students are then invited to speak to representatives of other subject areas of their choice in the DRC.  If you are unable to attend, a PODCAST will be available in the school newsletter after the event. 

SUBJECT SELECTION PLENARY MEETING

In the final step of the subject selection process, we are asking parents to attend a plenary meeting with their daughter and a member of staff.  This meeting will be an opportunity for parents to ask relevant questions about subjects, and for us to provide valuable advice on teacher feedback and the results from the Morrisby Assessment Program.  This meeting will take approximately 20 minutes.  These appointments, made through the PTO booking system,  will be available at a range of times from 17 June to 26 July.  The link to make appointments will be emailed to you prior to the Subject Selection Evening.

Please contact the  Learning Office  if you have any further questions.

Eventful weeks in Learning 

What eventful weeks we have had in Learning at Loreto.  The Learning Office has been an hive of activity, orchestrating the NAPLAN testing –which moved to online for us this year, Academic Plenaries across Years 7-11, the Canberra trip for Year 10, academic report writing for students across Years 7-11 and planning for the upcoming Year 10 Subject Selection process, which commences in Week 6 for Year 10 students. 

Parents, please note that the student reports for students in Years 7-11 will be issued across the remainder of this term.  We remind students and parents that these reports should be viewed with a lens of growth – students should consider the learning gains that they have had since last year and focus on potential areas for improvement and growth moving forward.  On that note, I would like to thank all of the teachers and Heads of Department who work tirelessly on tracking student growth and documenting student progress via our student reports and the academic plenary process. 

Bests wishes for a lovely weekend after a busy few weeks.
