Transcript of parent info night

YEAR 12 2015
a guide for parents
“ All parents, friends and relatives of a young person should worry less about the quantity of work a student is engaging in and, instead, focus much more on their emotional wellbeing”
“Surviving Year 12: A sanity kit for students and their parents” by Dr. Michael Carr-Gregg (2004)
BALANCE -
Stick to the basics:
Sleep, diet & exercise!


Part-time work < 8hrs per week
Relationships
Adopt the motto “ I’m here to help and offer any advice I can when you need it”
One of the greatest stressors for the final year student is parent-student relations
Together you (yourself and your son/daughter) can form a formidable team
Communication
Positive reinforcement.
Be prepared to be the supportive bystander.
Be open with communication
STRESS
“The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it”
Sidney J Harris (American Journalist with the Chicago Sun Times)
The main culprits of stress include:

assignment/exam deadlines
parental pressure
getting to and from school
managing finances; not having enough money
living with brothers and sisters who are
not doing their final year
Stress
STRESS
sibling rivalry in general
juggling the demands of a part-time job
falling in and out of love
preparing to travel abroad
making plans for “schoolies”
buying a car/getting a licence
PLANNING AND GOAL SETTING
Have realistic expectations
Encourage goal setting & time management
Help to create and maintain a study timetable
Quality of study vs quantity
Dedicated study space
Prayer
Perspective
“At times we create in our schools too much hype about the final years of school and we need to put this in the context of everything else. The VCE is an important year in [students’] lives, but it is not the most important year. It is just another stage in a student’s career, and the sun and the moon and the stars do not revolve around what happens at the end of it. Students have to be focused, disciplined and work hard, but they also have to understand that they are still a part of a unit of other people and should not be entering some kind of monastic existence that takes them away from their usual responsibilities.”

Howard Kelly
Former Chair of the Victorian Curriculum & Assessment Authority
Using technology
@ Year 12

Director of Wellbeing
This year is one step in your son/daughter’s pathway to success

The ATAR is a number not a judgement of the person

Plan A – Best possible outcome
Plan B – I would also like to do this
Plan C – Not preferred option but can live with it
Plan D – What do I do now?
Mark Westgarth
This time next year …

approx. 50% of this years Yr. 12 group will be at university
approx. 25% will be at TAFE
10 - 15% will be doing an apprenticeship
10 - 15 % will be in employment
Approx 5% will have deferred or be looking for work
What we know about MacKillop students
Enjoy the journey

Be prepared to take the scenic route

The 2011 program is only the first step

Ask yourself:
What does my child want to do?
How can I help them get there?
Who can help me?
There is more than one way
to get to the destination
They won’t always welcome your thoughts

Don’t expect everything to fall into place immediately

Career pathways are rarely straight ones

Complete career changes are now very common

Not everything needs to be achieved by their 21st birthday
The decision belongs primarily
to the young person…

Year 12 students should regularly check the tables outside the Year 12 Coordinators office for details of Seminars, resources etc.
Extra Resources
Must be completed in class
No extensions will be permitted.
If you are absent on the day of a SAC, then you must have a medical/statutory declaration, if you wish to sit the SAC at an alternative time. Failure to do this will result in an ‘N’ for the Unit.
School Assessed Coursework (SACs)

A maximum of 300 minutes per subject, per semester of APPROVED Absences may be granted for students participating in representative sport, etc. (this will be at the discretion of the VCE Leader and DP Year 10 – 12)
Attendance
Any Questions?
Write your student number in a few places

eg. diary, note in wallet, reminder in your phone.
Student Numbers
If you have been in Australia for less than 7 years, and your native language is not English, you may be eligible for ESL status.
Exam and SACs would change. Coursework would remain much the same.
ESL (English as a Second Language)
If you believe you require Special Provision to complete SACs and/or SATs due to ongoing illness or impairment or personal circumstances, then see Mr Ryan ASAP.
Special Provision for SACs and SATs
Special examination arrangements can be made for unexpected difficulties (e.g. broken arm) that may arise through out the year can be made at a later date.
Special Examination Arrangements
(for issues arising throughout the year)
If you believe you have a claim for Special Examination Arrangements, see Mr Ryan ASAP.
Conditions include poor eyesight, hearing difficulties and physical ailments that are ongoing.
Closing date for Special Examination Arrangements is Friday, 1st March.
Special Examination Arrangements
(for existing conditions)
Will not sit exams.
Complete one less subject.
Will not receive an ATAR and therefore not qualify for a University Placement.

*Failure to satisfactorily complete any SAC or SAT would mean a student would NOT graduate and NOT receive a VCE Certificate.
VSP
‘N’ results can be appealed and will be dealt with on a case by case basis.
Appeals will be heard by the VCE/VCAL Committee.
Not all appeals are successful.
Appealing an ‘N’ result for a SAC.


Must achieve 50% to receive an ‘S’ for SACs & SATs.
Pass Rate
Make sure the ‘Authentication Record for School-assessed Tasks’ is filled out and signed regularly (this is vital in case any work is lost).
If work has been lost, but documentation of progression is up to date, then a derived grade can be awarded.
IMPORTANT! However, derived grades cannot be awarded for lost computer files. It is up to the student to save and back-up work on computers (this also applies to SACs).
School Assessed Tasks (SAT’s)
Your homeroom teacher will then record your absence as ‘approved’ on the attendance module.
This means each of your teachers will then know that day was an ‘approved’ absence.
Documentation for Absences
Present your note and medical certificate/statutory declaration to your Homeroom Teacher no later than 3 days after your absence.
Please note that statutory declarations must be filled out by a parent on the day of the illness, and can only be used to excuse a single days absence.
*Statutory declarations can only be used for medical reasons!
Documentation for Absences
If you are absent on the day of a scheduled SAC, you will sit the SAC on the next Monday after school in TB7 provided your absence was an ‘Approved Absence’

Your subject teacher will fill out a Supplementary SAC form which indicates to you which day and time you will sit the SAC.
Supplementary SAC’s
Students are expected to attend 95% of classes in each unit.
Any referrals will count as an Unapproved Absence.
To be absolutely certain you don’t fall below 95% attendance, do not exceed 200 mins absence of class time.

Study Score Comparison
The main aim of scaling subject scores is to take into account the strength of competition within each study and therefore allow all studies to be compared fairly when calculating an ATAR.

Thus, after scaling, a subject ranking of 30 in English is equivalent to a subject ranking of 30 in History and a subject ranking of 30 in Physics.
Scaling
30: average performance
31-40: above average
>40: exceptional
20-29: below average
<20: rarely awarded
