The 2019 subject selection process
Current Years 9, 10 and 11 students are now well into all aspects of the 2019 subject selection process. As I have previously noted, subject selection can be an anxious time and the College has developed a variety of procedures to support both students and parents.
As 2019 student and parent information sessions for Years 10, 11 and 12 continue, documentation and PowerPoint presentations relating to each session are being made available in PDF form via the College’s webpage.
An important aspect of the 2019 subject selection process is the Subject Selection Guide which each Year 9, 10 and 11 student is required to submit. This has been developed at the request of parents and students as a single subject selection document that step-by-step leads you through the various aspects of subject selection for each year level.
Online submission of proposed 2019 studies
Students will again use Web Preferences, the online subject submission portal, to submit their proposed course of study and program details.
Students have been emailed a link to Web Preferences, along with detailed instructions. Parents have been sent an email explaining the submission procedure. Students and parents requiring support with the use of Web Preferences are asked to contact the Director of Administration, Mr Damian Kinnersly.
Please note: A parent and student signed copy of the 2019 Web Preferences Preference Receipt is to be submitted with the Subject Selection Guide.
2019 Year 12
Current Year 11 students should have submitted their proposed 2019 Year 12 subject choices via Web Preferences this week. Year 11 boys are reminded that they must return a parent and student signed copy of the 2019 Web Preferences Preference Receipt along with the completed 2019 Year 12 Subject Selection Guide to the College as a matter of priority.
2019 Year 11
The selection of Years 11 and 12 subjects can be a complex task requiring significant deliberation by all involved – student, parents and teachers alike. Current Year 10 boys attended the 2019 Year 11 Student Subject Selection session this week. As a follow-up to this session, parents and students are invited to the 2019 Year 11 Parent Information Evening which will take place next Wednesday (August 1) from 7:30pm in the Pavilion.
The 2019 Year 11 Subject Selection Interviews, have been scheduled for August 6, 8 and 11 to assist and support Year 10 students and their parents. Please refer to the previously sent email for further details regarding the booking interview times via PAM.
Year 10 parents and students are reminded that the 2019 Year 11, Subject Selection Guide is due on Wednesday, August 15.
2018 Year 10
Current Year 9 boys are asked to submit their proposed 2018 Year 10 subject choices via Web Preferences by Wednesday, August 8. Year 9 boys are reminded that they must return a parent and student signed copy of the 2018 Web Preferences Preference Receipt along with the completed 2018 Year 10 Subject Selection Guide by this date.
Parents with any questions or concerns about the 2019 subject selection process are asked to contact their son’s Pastoral Care Group tutor, relevant subject teachers, Faculty Head, Director of School or myself.
