Monday, 20 August 2018

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Students,

On Tuesday 21st August, MacKillop Catholic College will be hosting the Year 10 into Year 11 Subject Information evening for 2019 in the Fr. Jerry Remie Library starting at 5:30pm. Light refreshments will be provided during this evening.

Your attendance at this evening is important and beneficial for your child’s senior education.

Information that will be discussed throughout the evening includes:

  • What is and how does the Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET) work?
  • The different academic pathways which MacKillop Catholic College offer and facilitate;
    • Compulsory subjects (ACARA)
    • NTCET Completion; PLP
    • ATAR/Universities;
    • VET;
    • School Based Apprenticeships/Traineeships
  • Specific subject information

The schedule for this evening can be found on the back of this letter.

The information mentioned above and other information which will be presented throughout the evening, will best prepare you and your child to complete the Subject Survey and then Subject Selection forms in the coming weeks. This form will be part of your ‘Subject Selection Packs’ given out on the night.

If for whatever reason you are unable to attend this evening please email myself, jozef.fryckowski@nt.catholic.edu.au, so I can send you the required information from this evening.

All students will need to return their Subject Survey Form by Friday 24th August 2018. The Deputy Principal Academic Studies and myself, will then compile the subjects and lines to be offered in 2019. A Subject Selection Form will be handed to students on Monday 3rd September to be completed, signed and handed back in on Friday 7th September.
