Bingara Central School News: Week 9, Term 4 (December 10, 2010)

December 14, 2010

Today (December 10) we held a special assembly to recognise Year 10 students achieving the School Certificate. This is an important milestone and one which students and teachers have been working towards all year.

The School Certificate is an important credential and to receive the certificate students have to satisfactorily complete mandatory courses and externally supervised and marked exams in English, Maths, Science, History, Geography and Computers.  I would like to congratulate all our successful Year 10 students. Special recognition goes to Tori Dixon for achieving the highest combined score for all the School Certificate exams.

At this time I anticipate all eighteen Year 10 students continuing into Year 11 next year. This will make by far the largest senior class we have had since Years 11 and 12 were introduced in 2008. We look forward to providing these students with an appropriate curriculum and suitable pathways to achieve their Higher School Certificate in 2012.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter landed on the school oval on Thursday afternoon as part of a regional promotional tour to recognise the 10th Anniversary of the service based in Tamworth. The children were treated to a close-up inspection of the helicopter and had the opportunity to ask questions of the pilot and crew.

Just a reminder that all parents, carers, families and friends are invited to our Primary and High School Presentation night at the Roxy on Monday 13th December commencing at 6.30pm and again to the Infants Presentation at the Roxy at 1.30pm on Tuesday, 14th December. These are two very special occasions where we recognise the excellence of so many of our students.
