Class of 2017
Congratulations to Year 12 on their Graduation today – what a wonderful celebration of their educational journey. We are very proud of all of the students and their academic achievements, and we are glad that we had the opportunity to acknowledge these remarkable students with the variety of awards that were distributed today.
A reminder that the HSC commences on Monday 16th October with the first English paper at 10.20am. Students are advised to arrive at 9.50 am at the latest. Please also be mindful that the second English paper, on Tuesday 17th October, begins earlier, at 9.25am. Lateness to an exam due to misreading the timetable is not a valid excuse, so students are advised to check the timing of their exam schedule carefully.
Year 12 students are also encouraged to engage with their teachers and each other for revision purposes throughout the HSC examination period. We know from our historical data that if the students collaborate in their preparation for the examinations, working together to improve, the results of the entire cohort benefit. It does not pay for the girls to compete against each other – it is in their best interests to support each other and continue with what they do so well here at Loreto, collaborative learning.
Additionally, Year 12 students are advised to have a break in the last week of Term 3, 18th to 22nd September; they will not have access to the LRC or to their teachers during this week.
Students are invited to study in the LRC throughout the HSC period in Term 4.

Final best wishes to all of our Year 12 students – they should be proud of their achievements thus far and make the most of the coming weeks to immerse themselves in their studies and add value to their already fabulous results.
