The School Ball is a highlight in the school’s calendar and is held at the beginning of the year, in order to ensure the remainder of the year has a strong academic focus for our Year 11 and 12 students.
The Year 12 students attend Retreat with the Head of Secondary and Year 11/12 Co-ordinator. This is an opportunity for reflection, team-building, goal setting and planning.
Academic progress, work experience and leadership are a focus in Year 11. In Year 12 the focus is academic achievement, leadership and preparing for life beyond school.
Semester One examinations are held early in Term 2 for Year 11 and 12 students, Year 12 Mock Examinations are held in the last week of Term 3 and Year 11 Semester Two Examinations are held in Week 2 of Term 4. Year 11 students begin Year 12 Preparatory Courses in Week 3 of Term 4.
An important feature in Year 11/12 is the Guest Speaker Programme. Each week our school invites a apeaker to motivate, educate and inspire our students and prepare them for the challenges of a changing world.
Year 11 and 12 students are closely monitored, supported and counselled throughout their senior years.
The Year 11 Leadership process commences in Term 4 with a Year 11 Leadership Camp held at Rottnest Island in November. School Leaders are announced at Speech Night.
The highlight for Year 12 students is their final day at school (Graduation Day), which is the first Thursday in Term 4. The day begins with a Year 12 Breakfast at school and a tree planting ceremony where the Year 12s present the school with a tree as a parting gift and thank you. In the evening there is a Graduation Service and Dinner.
