Year 12 Industrial Technology Timber Major Projects

Congratulations to the year 12 Industrial Technology Timber class who have completed their major projects and folios! After many long hours and lots of hard work the students proudly displayed their work in the library this evening. Family and friends were very impressed with the finished pieces and the students are very proud of their achievements. Many thanks to Mr Duffy for supporting and guiding the students and for the extra hours you put in as the due date drew closer.

 

 

NAPLAN Online School Readiness Test

NSW schools will participate in the NAPLAN Online School Readiness Test from 14 August to 22 September. There is a lot of information for schools, students and parents on the NAPLAN Online transition website. The school readiness test is a ‘practice run’ for schools to assess their technology as we prepare to transition to NAPLAN Online. It provides an opportunity for schools to become familiar with the NAPLAN Online assessment platform but is not an assessment of student ability.

SMS Messaging

As of Monday 24th July, JFHS will be using an SMS and email service to notify you of absences. A message/email will be sent out in relation to unexplained late arrivals mid morning. A message/email will also be sent for unexplained whole day absences in the afternoon to remind families to supply an explanation. This can be done via note, school app or a phone call.

Student cards for updated family details were distributed for amendments last semester.  If there are any incorrect numbers or email addresses, please notify the front office as soon as possible.

If there are problems with the information you receive using this system, please contact the school. If there are any issues with our roll marking system, this communication practice will bring them into the open so we can rectify them.

Monitoring and encouraging school attendance is a legal responsibility of both the family and the school.  Thank you for the work we do together to ensure that our students be at school in order to learn.

What’s On
