QUEENSLAND CURRICULUM AND ASSESSMENT AUTHORITY
The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority released the 2014 Year 12 Outcomes recently and can be accessed from the web address below. To get the full details you click on the school’s name.
“The 2014 Year 12 Outcomes report has been published on the QCAA website:
https://www.qcaa.qld.edu.au/617.html. It shows student achievement on a school by school basis using a range of measures.”
When the results of Innisfail State College and Tully State High are compared to Good Counsel the following is evident. These comparisons can be verified at the web site.
|Year 12 students
|OP eligible students
|OP results between 1 and 10
|% students with Universities offer
|VET Cert 111 completed
|School based apprenticeship
These figures show that the College offers very good options for OP and non OP pathways for students. In the OP area the College results show that in OP 1 to 10 range there is a very significant gap between the College, Tully and Innisfail State College. Our university take up of courses is larger given the number of OP students at the College. We also have a larger number of students completing Cert 111 courses than the other schools.
Please see this week's newsletter for more details.
YEAR 12 RETREAT
Week 6 of term saw the Year 12 students and a Retreat group of Teachers travel to Genazzano for the Year 12 Retreat. What a beautiful week of relationships and Spirituality this turned out to be. Year 12 Parents and carers should be very proud of the fine young people that are maturing in our Year 12 cohort. It was a pleasure for all staff concerned to accompany these student’s for this time of spiritual growth and reflection. We were blessed to also be joined by Miss Sally McIniry Regional Coordinator of Marist Youth Ministry, who delivered sessions on Strong Young Women, Youth Faith and Future Directions.
Students participated in activities ranging from hand making of Reflection Journals, to Team Challenges to Liturgy preparation, swimming, and sessions on Happiness, Goals, Self, Forgiveness, Relaxation and Futures. It is anticipated that the sessions run on Year 12 Retreat will support student’s progress throughout their Year 12 studies. Beautiful memories were certainly made on this exceptional Retreat opportunity.
