Subject Choice Evening for Form I
This event for Form I boys and their parents looking ahead to Form II 2019 will be held on Thursday 13 September at 6.00pm in the Alastair Mackerras Theatre.
The evening is designed to help you and your sons make Form II subject choices. Mr Hesketh and Dr Stevens will talk about a range of relevant matters, including structure of secondary schooling in NSW, the HSC, courses offered at the School, and recent HSC reforms. We look forward to seeing you then.
NAPLAN results for Form I and Form III
NAPLAN 2018 results will be delivered to schools from mid September 2018 (date is to be confirmed depending on the ACARA release of results data).
Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS)
Two Form II Mathematics classes are required to take part in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) in November this year. TIMSS is an educational research project investigating student achievement in mathematics and science, and more than 60 countries participate. TIMSS provides perspectives on how students in Australia are performing in comparison to their peers in other countries.
The selected boys will complete an assessment in Mathematics and Science and complete a questionnaire about their experiences at home and at school. There is no need for students to study specifically for the assessment, as it will not affect the boys’ grades or progress in school.
More information will be provided to the families of those boys taking part in Term IV closer to the date of the assessment.
All data will be kept strictly confidential and no individuals or schools will be identified in published data or reports.
