Parent/Teacher Interviews
Interviews with Years 11 and 12 teachers will be conducted on Tuesday 14 May, while interviews with Years 9 and 10 teachers will take place on Wednesday 22 May. All interviews will be held in the Senior School Rooms from 4 - 6pm and from 7 - 9pm. This will be an important time for parents to hear how their child is progressing.

Years 11 and 12 Parent/Teacher Interviews:
During the break (6-7pm) Mr Robson, Dean of Administration, will give a presentation on the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) requirements for the Higher School Certificate. An overview of the marking procedure and the link to the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) will be discussed. This will be a very informative session that I recommend all parents to attend.

Years 9 and 10 Parent/Teacher Interviews:
During the break (6–7pm) Mr Robson (Dean of Administration) will be presenting a session on the NESA requirements for Years 9 and 10 students and how they link to HSC and ATAR.

I look forward to seeing you on the night!
