Year 8 Adviser

08 Nov 2022

As it is Week 5, assessment due dates are quickly approaching and classroom teachers are beginning to support students in class in preparation for any upcoming exams. Here are some tips to get students through this time frame: 

  • Be organised. Keep all assessment notifications in one place such as a display folder

  • Keep assessment dates on a calendar at home or in a phone to remember when they are due

  • Ask for help if overwhelmed or are not sure how to complete the task. Students can ask their classroom teachers or come to see myself or any of the staff in the Teaching and Learning Faculty for assistance. 

Last term students were all asked to submit subject selections for Year 9, 2023. Classes are filling up quickly and if students would like to change their electives for next year they need to come and see me as soon as possible. Also, for those students who chose Commerce in the original preferences, this subject has now been made available. Come and see myself or Mr Jorgensen if you need to discuss your elective selections for 2023. 

On a fun note, students in Year 8 have been having a blast on a Thursday afternoon at Aqua Golf. Congratulations to Riley Want and Jack Swanbrough for winning prizes in Week 4. Finally also congratulations to William Slade, Olivia Pollock, Emily Jackson and Lilly Harris for excelling in consistently representing Mount View High School in a positive manner within the community. 

Year 8, thank you for a fantastic year. Have a well earned holiday and I look forward to continuing to support you in Year 9, 2023.
