Subject selection evenings are coming up for Year 8 students going into Year 9.

Naplan 2017

Naplan results from across the nation have now been released.

The table below shows the percentage of students at Terrace above the National benchmark for each of the areas in the Naplan tests. We congratulate our staff and students on these outcomes.

Individual student reports will be posted home upon delivery to Terrace.

QCS Practice Days

Next week our Year 12 students will attempt QCS practice tests across the two days on August 14 and 15. The Seniors have worked hard across the year to maximise their results on all four papers. This will be our final practice prior to the formal QCS tests on August 29 and 30.

All Year 8 students will receive a booklet outlining the content and assessment for each of the option subjects offered at Terrace. The evening will commence with general information about subjects followed by specific subject presentations and followed by an opportunity to speak with individual subject coordinators and Heads of Faculty.

Year 11 into Year 12 – English Extension and Music Extension

Year 11 students have been informed of the extensions subjects in English and Music that are offered at Terrace in Year 12. The information evenings for these subjects are- English Extension- Tuesday August 22 in the GT125 theatre commencing at 6pm; Music Extension – Wednesday August 23, commencing at 6pm in the Music room.

Busy Time

With Week 5 almost completed, many students will have assignments that are nearing completion and submission. Every student should ensure that he has checked his work prior to submission so that he is confident that he has produced his best work. Good planning leading up to due dates will always allow for checking and refining. Poor planning will result in handing in work that can compromise a student’s best outcome. I strongly encourage all of our students to make sure that their planning always allows for a checking and refining time prior to submission.
