AVID students from years 7-11 participated in a symposium which focused on Retention in Education. Students were prepared in their AVID classes with the critical reading of texts, which addressed issues relating to retention in education. This will now lead into a learning task where students will work in teams to develop a project for semester 2; this project will have the primary aim of communicating the importance of staying at school to a select audience in our college community.
AVID teachers also presented mid-year awards to nominated students who have performed outstandingly in the following areas:
- Cornell Notes
- Organisation (binder /planner)
- Leadership in Collaboration
- Commitment to AVID (All rounder award)
Congratulations to the award winners (listed below), and many thanks to parents and guardians who attended to support the students.
We are very fortunate to have a strong AVID teaching team who motivate our students to do their best. Thank you to the wonderful teaching staff Ms Kristy
Muratore, Mr Christopher Troy, Ms Maria Panagiotidis and Ms Athena Vass.
We would also like to acknowledge the butchers Meat2U who donated 200 sausages for our sausage sizzle.
