ONLINE LITERACY & NUMERACY ASSESSMENT
All families of students who are in Year 9 have been sent a letter outlining the sitting of the OLNA testing for Year 9s to replace NAPLAN, in August of this Year. If you have not received this letter via email, you or your child can pick one up from reception until the end of Term. If students can pass OLNA this year it means they will not have to sit it in Years 10 - 12, which will help relieve a lot of stress in the senior years.

YEAR 10 CAREERS INFORMATION SESSIONS
This week the Career information session was organised and presented by Year 11 and 12 students. Stations were set up for each Learning Area. The Year 10s were able to speak to Year 11 and 12 students about the different courses they were enrolled in at St Mary’s College, which included ATAR, non-ATAR , Vet, Certificate Courses and Traineeships. Many questions were asked and answered. This was a great new initiative set by our senior students and an effective and informative way to assist the Year 10s with their subject selections which will be happening soon. This was also a timely event leading up to next week’s Year 10 Careers parent/students information session, being held on Wednesday 24th June starting at 5pm in the Secondary General Learning Area Classrooms 2 & 3. Thank you to the Year 11 and 12s for running this event and we look forward to viewing all of the Year 10 subject selections soon. We look forward to seeing all the Year 10 parents with their son/daughter next week!

VOCATIONAL EDUCATION TRAINING & CARE
Our students are very lucky to have numerous opportunities to enhance their learning with many offerings outside St Mary’s. Last week a group of Year 10 and 11 girls were very fortunate to start work on their Certificate II in Leadership with Goolarri. The girls had loads of fun and learnt how to operate camera equipment as well as looking at their organisational skills. They can’t wait to go back for the next block session. Some of our Year 11 students are undertaking TAFE courses in very diverse areas from Retail Beauty to Hospitality, Automotive and Aquaculture, to name a few. Some of our Year 11 Aquaculture students had a great time handling some awesome barra!
