Semester 1 Reports: Mr Norris was impressed with the academic results achieved from students during Semester 1.  Overall students achieved an 85% academic pass rate with some students having a lowest achievement level of a ‘B’.  Mr Norris acknowledged all these students for achieving the very best they can.
Our attendance rate is currently 92% which we need to try and improve on by attending school every day. 96.5% of students are doing the right thing in class and achieving gold or silver level for behaviour. The majority of our Year 11 students are on track for QCE requirements.
Mr Norris encouraged students to get involved in the various clubs and activities on offer whilst at school and to consider participating in a traineeship or volunteering within the community.  Mr Norris said he wants students to look back on their school days with fond memories especially with the friends and bonds they have formed. 
Future Assemblies: Focus will be on our school values to help students transition to adulthood.
