We are glad to see our Year 9 students back for the 2023 academic year, in what will be a crucial year for their education. Year 9 have made a positive start to the year and students are enjoying getting their first experience of electives, with classes in forensic science, extension science, visual arts, visual arts, visual communication, music, media and society, politics & power currently running. We encourage your children to reflect on what subjects they are enjoying in advance of Year 10 subject selection, which will take place later in the year.
Students should have received a consent form to take part in their Morrisby testing earlier this month. If your child has lost their slip, they can request a new one from their mentor group teacher or the Year 9 coordination team. Morrisby testing is a free careers-profiling service run by My Career Insights. Students who complete the testing will receive suggestions for careers that may be of interest to them, based on their responses to literacy, numeracy and abstract reasoning questions. They will also get questions on their interests and topics they are passionate about. Students who complete the testing will also be eligible for an interview with a professional careers counsellor to discuss and unpack their results.
Even though the testing is not due to start until May, we do need your permission for your child to participate in this valuable opportunity, so please return their form as soon as you can – and thank you to those of you who have already returned it!
