In Conversation periods this week, we discussed the importance of thinking ahead and planning. This topic was particularly relevant for students in Years 9 and 10, who have until the end of February to consider any possible changes to their electives.

Should your daughter wish to change her elective, please send an email to learning@loretonh.nsw.edu.au, identifying the subject/s that she would like to change from, and her requested new elective/s.

Please note there are several factors that will be taken into consideration regarding elective change requests. Some changes may not be possible due to issues such as the combination of electives and given we have started lessons, elective changes may impact other elective classes.

In relation to Year 10, if they wish to make an elective change they can only select the other subject they did as an elective in Year 9, with the exception of Elective History and Elective Geography which are not offered in Year 10.

If you or your daughter have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me via learning@loretonh.nsw.edu.au or on 02 9487 3488.
