Option Forms will be given out in Roopu today and are now available on this website (click here ) under Curriculum.
Interviews will be held in the library next week on Tuesday 13th August. The purpose of these interviews is to check the options are suitable and that students have the best opportunity to succeed.

10MCN – 11.40am
10WRD – 12.10pm

Parents are very welcome to attend these interviews. If you need to talk further to a Dean, Careers Advisor or anyone else about your student’s option choices, please contact the school for an appointment.

For Year 11 and 12 students (going into Year 12 and 13 in 2014):
Students have been given their Curriculum books (also available here). The option forms will be available immediately after Prelim Exams. Interviews will be held in week 6 (with the ‘mop up’ in week 7).
