Next week Year 7 and 9 will complete their NAPLAN tests on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Students and parents can find further information on the NAPLAN tests and examples of questions at All students should familiarise themselves with these tests.

Year 11 have finished their first set of assessment tasks and Years 7 - 10 will do their half–yearly exams in Week 4. I encourage all students to use the exam period as a chance to prepare thoroughly and refine their study skills. Students should ask teachers how best to study for their subjects.

Year 11 will complete their Crossroads program at their 3 day camp on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week. Thank you to Mrs Karen Johnston, Year 11 Advisor and Mr Peter Low, for the organisation of this camp.

The Community of James Ruse will meet on Tuesday night at 7.45 pm in the Lecture Theatre. The guest speaker at this meeting will be our Head Teacher of Mathematics, Mrs Heather Weber.
