Year 9 and 10

Year 9

In Year 9, students will become familiar with more formal assessment processes. Print out our term assessment planner (DOCX 47.04KB) and check your child is writing down all exam and assessment dates – keep it on the fridge as a reminder. Your child will also do the external NAPLAN tests this year.

Encourage your child to read for pleasure, to try different genres and more difficult books. This will build their vocabulary and show them different styles of writing – helping with their own writing and comprehension.

Year 10

In Year 10, students follow a formal assessment program. Make sure your child writes all assessment task dates on the term assessment planner (DOCX 47.04KB)  for each term and stick it on the fridge as a reminder. Late assessment tasks usually mean penalties such as reduced marks, so keep an eye on upcoming tasks – especially those that require a lot of preparation. Adding tasks to their smartphone calendar with alarms to remind them before each is due will also help keep them on track.

Eligible students receive their Record of School Achievement (RoSA) if they leave school at the end of Year 10 to work or complete other study.

Planning HSC or VET

This year, your child will choose subjects for Years 11 and 12. Start talking about this early – with them, the careers adviser and their teachers. Students planning to get their HSC will have opportunities to sit the HSC minimum standard online tests from Year 10 onwards.

Vocational education and training (VET), including school-based apprenticeships and traineeships, is a great option for students who think they may wish to pursue a trade after school. Not only can they get a taste of a career, they can finish high school with a qualification and an ATAR, if eligible subjects are chosen. This leaves their options open and can give them a great head start in getting a job.
