Well done to all the students, staff and parents who were involved in this fundraising initiative. Mrs Legg and a few of our students were interviewed by TEAR to provide feedback. Thank you all for supporting this cause.

Year 8 TIMSS

A number of Year 8 classes have been selected to take part in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS).  TIMSS is an important educational research project investigating student achievement in mathematics and science.  More than 60 countries, including Australia, are participating in this study.  TIMMS is used to keep us informed about how students in Australia are performing in comparison to their peers in other countries and to compare programs of study and teaching practices.  The school will be able to obtain current national and international information which will help improve the teaching and learning of mathematics and science in our country.

Selected students will do an assessment in Mathematics and Science and complete a questionnaire about their experiences at home and school.   There is no need for students to study specifically for the assessment as it will not affect individual students’ grades or progress in school. The students who are involved have been given an information brochure by their Mathematics teacher this week. Parents are welcome to call the school if they have any questions at all.

All data will be kept strictly confidential and no individual student or school will be identified in published data or reports.

END OF AN ERA FOR SPORTING SISTERS

 2018 has marked another massive year for the Edwards sisters Rachael (Year 12) and Crystal (Year 9), who have continued to make exceptional strides in swimming, cross-country and triathlon competitions across the nation. Though the sisters will no longer be navigating school sport as a pair following Rachael’s recent graduation, it hasn’t stopped their outstanding sporting results from rolling through.
