The dates of these tasks can also be accessed via the school calendar (Year 8 tab) on the Sentral Student and Parent Portal

Our teachers use a variety of strategies to assess student learning. Teachers observe students' work in class and look closely at tasks throughout the year. They also formally assess a student's achievement based on the outcomes described in the syllabus of the subject.
