We welcome you to this next stage of your child’s education, as they begin their HSC journey. During the last week of Term 2, it was great to meet with students, parents and carers to discuss the transition to Year 11 next year. There will be further opportunities to ask questions and details about this can be found below. On Monday 5 July, students in Year 10 will be sent an initial preferences survey for the subjects that they would like to study in Years 11 and 12. To assist with this process, below are several important documents to help guide this process.
The Stage 6 Handbook contains important information about each course offered in Years 11 and 12 at TAS. Please ensure that you have read this document and are familiar with the expectations of each course and its assessment requirements.Stage 6 Handbook
It is important that students are aware of the policy for assessment in Stage 6. This document will be explored early in Year 11 with all students so they are familiar with what is required of them. CLICK HERE to view Stage 6 Policy.
Please read through the PDF version of the information concerning Year 11 and 12 at TAS, including subjects offered, timetable structures and how the HSC works. An opportunity to discuss this further and ask questions will be provided through a series of Zoom sessions.TAS Presentation
As there were a number of families who were unable to attend the presentations held at the end of Term 2, our Director of Studies will be available in a number of different Zoom sessions to discuss the subject selection process further and answer any parent questions. Numbers in these sessions are limited, so please ensure you book your session by emailing Luke Polson at [email protected] Please ensure when you are booking these, that you include the email address that you wish to use to access the Zoom session.
Please see below instructions for making these subject selections through Edval. The subject selection system will be open from Thursday 27 August to Friday 4 September.
Where to next?
Year 10 students will receive an email inviting them to submit their initial subject preferences through EDVAL. The subject selection system will be open from Monday 5 July to Sunday 25 July, 2021. Once all of the initial preferences are received, our Principal and Director of Studies will determine the final subject lines for 2021. Once these are finalised, they will be published on this webpage. We anticipate that these will be finalised by the beginning of Week 4, Term 3, to allow students and families to make their final selections. Students will then submit their final choices, again through the Edval system, during the second half of Term 3.
Mr Luke Polson
