Middle School Report

Years 7 and 8 are travelling very nicely at the moment, with many of the students well settled in their school routines. Work is being completed and submitted, with most students aware that the end of the year is approaching fast and that assessment and reporting are high on the agenda.

I have been very impressed with the focus that most students are exhibiting towards their studies and although these year levels don’t have exams, there are numerous tests and assessments that are being conducted at the moment.

For Steiner students there are camps that are being organised which will certainly be invaluable experiences for the students.

The Mainstream year 7’s and 8’s have just returned from their outdoor adventures and have had a wonderful time.

In the next few weeks all the Year 8 students will be participating in Senior School interviews in front of a senior panel of Secondary teachers. This is where they face a panel of three senior teachers and produce or present three pieces of work they are proud of that were completed in the course of their studies this year. They will be reflecting over the year and discussing their goals and aspirations for the next stage of their journey. This exercise has always proved to be most rewarding for the students as they enter the upper secondary school and also for the teachers who become acquainted with transitioning students from the middle school. Year 8 students will be receiving their presentation timetable by early next week.

There is a sense of excitement as the year draws to a close, but at the same time, there is an atmo9shere of serious focus as students realise the year is not over yet and there is still plenty of work to be completed.
