GRADE 9 – IMPORTANT NOTICE

 

We would like to give very early warning to the parents of our Grade 9 learners that there is a compulsory Subject Choice Meeting for parents and girls at the end of Term 3.

It is vital that parents attend this meeting in order to fully participate in this very important decision that your daughter will need to make at that time. While it may seem very early in the year to be writing to you about this; it is really important that your daughter begins to think about her future subjects NOW. Not least of all because many of our subjects are limited by Grade 9 marks in their feeder subjects. So, for example, if your daughter wishes to do Physical Sciences, she must achieve at least 60% for Maths in Grade 9. Class size, of course, is also a limiting factor. Last year, for instance, there was much competition for spaces in the Life Sciences classes.

So... please start talking to your daughter as soon as possible about her dreams and aspirations. If there is a subject she is desperate to do, the best thing she can do is to work as hard as she possibly can NOW to get the best marks she possibly can in the feeder subjects to ensure that she will not be disappointed at the end of the year.

Girls are welcome to ask me specifics about feeder subjects and which subjects are historically the most difficult to get into. Please remember

 

- Mr Still
