HSC Examinations Conclude

Congratulations to our students who completed their HSC examinations this week. The final examination was Drama which took place on Wednesday.  I would like to congratulate all students who conducted themselves calmly and maturely throughout the examination process. Marking is now well underway and we wish our students well over the coming weeks as they  await their results.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind students to come to the Principal’s HSC Morning Tea on Friday 18 December from 10:00am  in the Mary Ward Quad.   It is a great achievement to have completed the HSC and be ready to move on to the next chapter of your lives and we would love to celebrate with you. Please view the invitation  here.

Celebrations of Learning –  Diverse Learning

Jigsaw is a social enterprise that trains and transitions people into award wage employment and offers supported training and work experience. Two of our students, Mia Doggett, Year 11, and Claudia Stratton, Year 10, have been given an opportunity to join one of their work experience programs, Avenue, for Term 4 this year. Mia and Claudia will travel weekly to Allambie Heights and assist in one of the Learning Hubs, Animal Care.

Other Hubs include the Entrepreneur, Marketing, Sale Hub and more. Each Hub has a team leader who encourages and empowers participants to engage in meaningful and supported work. On arrival students are given  online tasks to complete including modules on related business skills.

 Mia and Claudia are  working on developing their social skills and learning how to work as a team. The Avenue Program is also about building a connection to the community, and having “hands-on” skills in caring for animals. The team have a series of pet care tasks booked in each week, whether they are caring for a pet in the office, visiting someone’s home or taking a dog to the park. Other group activities may include  researching animal care and going  on supported trips to shelters and information centres.
