Year 10 Subject Selection Session 2022

On the 2nd of June , a breakfast was held for Year 10 student and parents to provide information on the subject selection process for years 11 and 12. The information session provided understanding of the process to transition Year 10 students into their senior studies. The College principal Mr Ayman Alwan welcomed and addressed the parents and guests for attending the information session and highlighted the importance of our school values with emphasis on academic achievement, as well as the support network within the school. The High School Coordinator Mrs Lubaba Dabboussi highlighted the importance of Year 10 students successfully completing their HSC all my work program with NESA, as well as work experience, corptraining and mock interviews program. These initiatives undertaken by the college aim to develop Year 10 communication skills necessary for not only studies in the Stage 6 courses, but also for the workplace should students seek part-time employment while completing their senior years of schooling. The Curriculum Coordinator Mrs Chaza Kasem provided attendees with elaborate information to help students and parents make wise decisions regarding course selection in Year 11. Students were encouraged to think about their subject strengths, and how to best ensure successful results. Assessments in the senior school and the process of grading and calculating external assessments (ATAR) was also highlighted by Mrs. Kasem so that parents and students understand the importance of planning and goal setting in schooling. The session concluded with parent teacher meeting and sharing a lovely breakfast organised by the SRC. We hope that sessions like these effectively establish communication with parents and students so that the college is in a position to enable the achievement of the best outcomes of students.
