Assessment week at Narrabundah College has been progressing well. Last week students completed exams in mathematics, science, accounting, sociology, economics and more. Further exams were held earlier this week and today and yesterday year 12 students completed AST testing. Exam week got off to a great start early last week. Monday was a normal school day and Tuesday’s line six ensured that all students had at least one lesson contact with their teachers before the exams commenced on Wednesday. After Tuesday’s line six lesson the day was dedicated to student study enabling students the opportunity for last minute consultations with their teachers before the exams commenced the following day. Narrabundah College thanks all students for the patience’s in the leadup to and during the examination period. Further the college acknowledges the efforts made by students during each exam.
