YEAR 10 HAPPENINGS

23/06/2015
 

Year 10 Happenings

 
Term 2 is flying on by and before we know it, holidays will be upon us.  Year 10s have been busily involved in Winter Sport rounds, Maths Tournaments, History competitions, our annual Cross Country Carnival as well as a live theatre performance of Romeo and Juliet by the Shake and Stir Theatre Company.   
 
Access and SET Plans
As part of their Access program each Thursday morning, students have been involved in a game called “Be Real.”  They are each given a persona and assume the role of this person by creating a resume, applying for jobs, making a budget and dealing with real issues such as retrenchment and downsizing.  This is important preparation for Term 3 when they begin their detailed SET Planning phase.  SET Plan stands for Senior Education and Training Plan and is a record of students’ pathways after they leave high school as well as their current reporting results and subject selections.  SET Plan Interviews will take place in Term 3 on 24 August and it is compulsory for all Year 10 students and their parents to attend.  This week, students will have their first of three Career Options talks which outline the subject choices available to them in Years 11 and 12.  Please encourage discussion at home about the subjects your child enjoys and possible pathways for them after school.

Student Council
 
There was a lot of interest for Student Council positions this year and six students were selected to be the Year 10 Student Council representatives.  Congratulations to: Rhylie Coutts, Andrew Herbert, Mitchell Stuparich, Ryan Lowe, Zoe Vassallo and Zoey Langbien.  They are going to liaise with the Year 10 House-Group Captains and will be responsible for raising important issues at the Student Council meetings held once per term. 
 
 There are a host of leadership opportunities for Year 10 students to try out before they hit Year 11 including Student Council, House-Group Captains, BEACON and Club Leaders for Year 7s and 8s and it’s never too late to get involved, so see Mrs Tett if you would like to experience a leadership opportunity this year.
