High School Information 26.05.2017

Short-term Exchange – France
Year 11 students intending to study French to the end of 2017 and or Years 9 and 10 students intending to study French in 2018 who are interested in undertaking a four-week short-term, private exchange to our Sister School, Lycée Jacques Callot in Nancy, in January-February 2018, can collect an application package from Katharine Podmore. The application requires students to address a series of selection criteria. Applicants will also be required to meet with an interview panel towards the end of Term 2. Successful applicants will begin orientation for this program early in Term 3. Staff do not accompany these short-term exchanges and parents are responsible for organising all travel arrangements. Expressions of interest close on 9 June 2017.

SSATIS Cross Country
The SSATIS Cross Country carnival will be held at the Rokeby Police Academy grounds on Wednesday 31 May. High School students will travel to and from Rokeby by bus, which will depart from the top Elizabeth Street bus stop (near the Blue Gum service station) at 9.00am and is scheduled to return at approximately 2.45pm. Students will need to bring suitable energy food, a drink bottle and their lunch. Parents are most welcome to attend. We ask that students ensure they are organised to wear the correct sports uniform for this event.
