The school of choice for our community, one of the best schools in Western Australia, and a driving force in the development of the dynamic Pilbara region.
We take pride in the all-round achievement of our students and strive to instil high personal goals through various academic and sporting initiatives and extra curricula programmes.
Assessment assists teachers and schools in monitoring the progress of students and diagnosing learning difficulties, adjusting programs to ensure all students have the opportunity to achieve the intended outcomes, developing subsequent learning programs, reporting student achievement to parents and whole-school and system planning, reporting and accountability procedures.
Assessment procedures must therefore be fair, valid and reliable.
Post-compulsory student assessment guidelines are set by the Curriculum Council. Adherence to these guidelines is mandatory. Our assessment policy is designed to illuminate the guidelines, not replace them.
An assessment outline will be provided to students at the commencement of the learning program.
For years 8 – 10, students are given a numerical mark and grade for work they have produced with weightings applied to the assessments. Students receive a grade for each semester completed.
In WACE course units students are given a numerical mark for the work they have produced. The end-of-unit grade is arrived at by taking into account the cumulative total of these marks, with weightings applied to the various assessment tasks. Students receive a grade for each unit completed.
