YEAR 12 STUDENTS

SATAC DEADLINE
Next Wednesday, 30 September, is the deadline for SATAC university applications. After this date, there is a late fee and not all courses can be added. See the inside cover of the SATAC Guide for these courses. A reminder if a parent has qualified and received the Centrelink  Job Seeker payment anytime during your son/daughters Year 12 studies then the student is eligible to apply for the five equity bonus points on their SATAC Applications. Click here for the link to approved Centrelink benefits.

Given that the timing of these deadlines are during the school holiday period, students requiring help are asked to email Ms Coorey with a mobile phone number and she will call or email within 24 hours.

TAFE SA
Many TAFE SA courses are becoming “competitive”, meaning that your applied date is often the basis for selection. Students interested in a TAFE SA course are encouraged to apply via the SATAC website as soon as possible. Please note applications are free.

University of Adelaide Year 11 Conditional Offer Updates
Congratulations to the 60 students who have received their conditional offer for a 2021 University of Adelaide course. As long as the conditional offer remains on the SATAC preference list, students can still take up the offer and it no longer needs to remain in first preference by 7 January 2021.

Interstate Applications
Students interested in applying for a course interstate must apply by Wednesday 30 September. There may be a supplementary application required that will need to be submitted by the deadline. See page 10 of the SATAC Guide for links.

Tax File Number
Students enrolling into university courses in January 2021 will need a Tax File Number. If students have not yet applied for their own TFN, we encourage them to visit the ATO website and begin the process during the holidays. It begins with an online form and it is free to apply for a TFN.

YEAR 11 AND YEAR 12 STUDENTS VET CERTIFICATE III

Students undertaking a VET Certificate III are reminded to keep up to date with their scheduled workload and competency completion, and any required work placements and log book entries. If you do not meet set deadlines your Certificate III, it may not be included in your SACE and therefore will not contribute to your ATAR. There is great flexibility this year due to COVID, however please ensure you are fully aware of all deadlines.

A reminder that any Work Placement must be approved by Mr Vizaniaris at least two weeks before it is undertaken. If you complete Work Experience without his approval it will not count and you will not be covered by insurance putting both you and the employer at risk.
