Linden Hall High School Fukuoka, Japan – 2018 Tsuzuki International Scholarship

Since its establishment in 2014, the Tsuzuki International Scholarship has provided successful Year 10 students committed to studying Japanese the opportunity to undertake an extended academic and cultural immersion to Japan.

Linden Hall is a co-educational high school which provides a full 12-year educational program from elementary, through junior school and into senior high school, and aims to cultivate internationally-minded people who are able to freely use English as a means to an end. The school adopts an English immersion program, in which all subjects besides Japanese are taught in English. Linden Hall is a day and boarding school which offers classes from both the Japanese national curriculum and the International Baccalaureate Diploma program.

Linden Hall is located in the city of Fukuoka.- Fukuoka, which is situated on the northern shore of the island of Kyushu, is Japan’s sixth largest city with a population exceeding 1.5 million.

St Patrick’s is pleased to announce Nigel Koot and Mathew Wilken as the successful recipients of the 2018 Tsuzuki International Scholarship. Nigel and Mathew will be travelling to Japan in early October and will be at Linden Hall for all of Term 4 before returning to Australia mid-December. Congratulations to Nigel and Mathew!

Mid Semester Reports

St Patrick’s College uses the Parent Access Module (PAM) to give parents and guardians online access to a range of information specific to their son(s). The Student Assessment area allows you to view and download your son’s mid semester and end of semester reports for this and previous years.

The 2018 Mid Semester Two reports for all Years 7-12 students will be available via PAM from 4:00pm this Friday (September 21). These reports will provide you with an insight into a range of classroom work habits for each subject studied by your son, his performance on assessment tasks completed to-date and a general statement on his overall academic progress to the end of Term Three.

Having already conducted P/S/T interviews this semester, parents who would like to follow-up on issues or concerns arising from this report are encouraged to email or phone the relevant subject teacher(s), your son’s Pastoral Care Tutor, the relevant Year Level Co-ordinator or the Director of School.

Your 2018 PAM username and password has previously been sent to you. Please phone 5331 1688 or email the College (adminsupport@stpats.vic.edu.au) should you require further assistance with your log-in.
