SENIOR SCHOOL NEWS

 

Kim Nguyen

Assistant Year 11 Coordinator

 

Welcome back to onsite learning! We, as a Senior Sub School Team, have been looking forward to seeing all the students returning onsite. We have been impressed by the mature attitude displayed by our senior students in their approach to their studies during Remote and Flexible Learning. VCE students are easing back into studying and are seeking feedback as they progress towards their final exams. VCAL students are busily meeting their outcomes and preparing for their end of year interviews.
