Hi All,

I hope everything is going ok. I am still off but keeping in touch with what is going on. You are off on a trip tomorrow. I will outline the details below or as much as I know at this stage. I believe your hoodies were to be in last Friday but didn't arrive. It would be great if they were in for tomorrow. Please wear warm clothes, heavy tracksuit bottoms not leggings and comfortable waterproof shoes. Walking shoes would be great. Remember some of you will be walking 10kms.

Work Experience Details

Can teachers now go through the work experience details with their class.

Please highlight in yellow if the student is not attending work experience at the moment. Please get details from anyone who has nothing filled in. Add the name of the business even if they don't know any other details. It is really important this document is kept up to date for our own insurance but also for covid track and trace.

Reminder that any student who does not attend work experience on a Wednesday must complete the assigned work in the google classroom and parents confirm the work is complete in the emailed google form. Thanks


Reminder that assessments will be taking place in all TY subjects over the next two weeks. Reports are to be completed by the 20th of November so make a good impression - Best foot forward folks!!
