Year 8 and 9 end of year program

The end of the year is fast approaching, but we aren’t slowing down at SEHS!

The final weeks of 2017 will be full of new challenges and learning opportunities for our students, and attendance continues to be compulsory.

My 21st Century Learning Presentation (My21CLP)

During Term 4, all Year 8 and 9 students participate in a self-directed research project and presentation. My21CLP is an important part of the Student Development program, giving students the opportunity to research an area of interest to demonstrate their learning using 21st Century capabilities.

Year 8 and 9 students have had the opportunity and freedom to work individually or within a group to learn about something they have a genuine interest in, as well as present to a panel comprising of staff and family members.

Students will also be working on this presentation in two lead-up days on Wednesday, December 7th, and Thursday the 8th. This means formal subject classes will conclude on Tuesday, December 6th (Week 8).

Parent/caregiver(s) and/or other family members are then invited to the school on Friday the 9th to watch and listen to the presentation. Your child will be able to book a presentation time in the coming days and will only be required to attend school for the duration of their presentation (approximately 15 mins).

We hope this will be a valuable experience for your child and will aid in the development of their research and communication skills.

Activities Week

While formal lessons conclude on Tuesday, December 6th, learning opportunities do not! Students are expected to attend throughout Week 9 as we embark on end of year celebrations and a 'Healthy Minds, Bodies and Communities' program.

On Monday, December 12th (Week 9), all students will attend a celebration day at Waterworld at Ridgehaven (cost $8, gst inclusive) – no students will be able to remain behind at the school. This excursion allows our 2017 Year 8s to experience their transition day at school. Correspondence regarding this excursion has been sent home previously.

The rest of the week will consist of a range of fun and engaging learning opportunities designed to focus on developing a critical and problem solving mind (Tuesday), a healthy and active body (Wednesday - cost $10 gst inclusive), and an awareness of, and commitment to improving, our community (Thursday).

Information regarding each of these days will be sent home in the coming days. The last day of school is Friday, December 16th. Students will be involved in school clean-up and community service activities until their dismissal at 12 noon. End of year school reports will be available via the SEHS Daymap Parent Portal (if you require a paper copy then please contact the front office).

Returning to school in 2017

As in previous years, our 2017 Year 9s, 10s and 11s will commence school on Tuesday, January 31st. This allows our incoming Year 8 and Year 12 students to have an intensive orientation program on Monday the 30th.

Please be advised that the uniform guidelines remain the same, although we have introduced some new items for 2017, including school logo sports shorts and a cap (available from Totally Schoolwear). All students and families have agreed to the SEHS School Uniform Policy on enrolment and, as such, compliance is expected.

From 2017, Year 10 students may purchase the Senior School polo top as they will be considered to be in the Senior Sub-School. This will be phased in throughout 2017.

A whole school awards ceremony will be conducted on our students' return to school in 2017. We feel this celebration will be a fantastic way to start off the year and set a great standard for engagement and achievement.

Should you have any questions in regards to any of the activities or programs, please contact Year 8 Coordinator Angela Moses, Year 9 Coordinator Mackella Jeffrey or AP Student Wellbeing Sue Shepherd on 8258 2070.

We wish all of our students and their families a safe and happy holiday break.
