Introducing UOW Alternative Entry

Dear Parents, Carers and Year 12 Students

UOW recognise that the 2021 NSW Year 12 cohort has experienced immense disruption and a considerable deal of anxiety regarding their final school assessments. A great deal of this disruption and uncertainty around the HSC occured during term three, coinciding with the Early Admission application period.

Introducing UOW Alternative Entry allows those students who were greatly impacted during this time, to submit an application and be assessed on attributes other than the ATAR, rather than miss out on this opportunity.

Applications close Monday, 24 September 2021.

Principal's Update - 16 September 2021

Dear Families

As we approach the term break, I want to extend warm greetings and congratulations to you and the students of this wonderful community.  

You will be aware that Lockdown restrictions for the Bega LGA lifted from 1:00pm today. It has been a difficult time across the valley, and our teaching staff have maintained their high level of professionalism and care.

Likewise, the students have maintained engagement, continued to contribute to our vibrant College culture and shown persistence and determination in their learning.

Thank you for your support through all of this. We continue with remote learning for just one day more, preparing to welcome students back to the College site for Face to Face learning in the first week of Term 4.

Please read the attached letter for the transition dates.

Further information, including updates from CECG can be viewed here.

Regards

Shane Giles

Principal's Message & COVID-19 Update - 10 September 2021

Dear Families

As you are aware, the lockdown for our region remains in place. This leaves us to continue in Remote Learning at least until the term break. I would like to thank families for the ongoing support of the College. It is a trying time across the community, and felt acutely in this learning community. We continue to be in contact with our students in the remote classrooms, and engagement levels remain high. We enter now into a period of remote assessments for Year 11, and the last official teaching week for Year 12. Please be mindful that Year 12 are expected to be available for all of their classes up until 17 September 2021.

HSC exams are now scheduled from 9 November until 3 December 2021, with results and ATARs to be released on 20 January, 2022. Students will be able to access their HSC timetables from Monday, 13 September 2021. We are shaping our approach to delivery of Year 12 classes for Term 4 in order to keep students engaged in their learning and exam preparation.

Revised Term 4 Start Date

Our Term 4 Staff PD Day, which was scheduled for Tuesday, 5 October 2021, has been changed to a teaching day at Lumen Christi.
