College Blazers for Year 9

College blazers will be presented to our Year 9 students at a special assembly early next term. All Year 9 students will need a blazer purchased for them from the Uniform Shop by the end of Term 1, in preparation for this occasion. Please be aware that the blazer needs to be paid upfront, as it will not come off your school fees, and that the blazer will be kept by the College until the ceremony. Those small number of Year 9 students who have previously purchased a blazer, will need to return it to Mrs Annette Jastremski at the Uniform Shop by the end of the term, in order for the blazer to be officially presented at the ceremony.

ICAS Testing

Every year our College invites our parents and caregivers to allow their children to participate in the external ICAS exams, which involves a series of tests across a range of disciplines. The tests are run during school time on dates that are set by the University of New South Wales. Every child who participates receives a certificate.

There are several advantages of participating in nationally based external exams. They give you a gauge as to how your child is performing in certain areas across a broad spectrum of schools and colleges. You will receive detailed feedback with the certificate about specific strengths, and areas needing further attention for your child to improve in the subject assessed. Regardless of how your child performs, the ICAS certificate is a useful record to keep in your child’s resume of scholastic achievement. Read More …
